[The supply list for this Die Cut Window Card appeared yesterday.]
Cut two window cards from green cardstock. Score and fold to form 5 1/2-inch wide x 4-inch high horizontal cards.
Follow package directions to iron peacock feather design to left of die cut window as shown.
Drip and drizzle alcohol inks directly from the bottles onto the scrap of acetate. Tilt the acetate to allow the inks to run and blend and into each other until you get a pleasing pattern. set aside to dry.
Stamp message around window using alphabet stamps and distress ink.
Choose a pretty section of the acetate sheet and cut a 2 1/2-inch. Use glue stick to affix the acetate to the 2-inch window opening (glue to the inside of the card front). Weight with a heavy book until the glue sets.
I used the Crafter's Companion Ultimate Tool to tie a small bow. [See The Artful Crafter Craft Ideas I Love Pinterest Board for a super clever way to tie tiny bows using a kitchen fork.]
Trim the ends and glue the bow in place as shown using tacky glue.
