CC&M Trees in the Window card

I love this A2 Four Pane Window die cut card from Creative Cuts and More so much, I actually ordered 55 of these in this gorgeous Ocean Breeze color. It's a beautiful cross between the retired SU Cool Caribbean and Soft Sky colors. I used these for a Christmas card swap earlier this month with a bunch of wonderful ladies. I can't tell you how easy it was to put this card together - gotta love that when you are making tons of Christmas cards, right? :-)

I stamped the trees in different colors and then cut them out. There is a thin line of adhesive (Killer Red Tacky Tape) along the bottom of the windows on the inside of the card. I arranged the trees in the window and attached them to the adhesive. Then I wanted a little snow falling behind the trees, so I stamped some snow on a small sheet of Sahara Sand cardstock and then attached that inside the card.

The sentiment is stamped with the dark blue ink and then cut out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities rectangle die. I needed a pretty border, so I used a scalloped rectangle die and cut out the dark blue mat for the sentiment. I purposely kept this card free from bulky embellishments so they would be easy to mail. Don't you just love quick and easy cards?
