Happy Birthday Window card - floating candles!

Good morning!

Click HERE for the Monday challenge!

Some of you have asked for a video showing how I made my 'Hundred Hearts' window card.  I made this card the same way and there is a video if you keep scrolling down!  Yay!

I have been having a great time making these window cards with the floating die cuts!  They are so much fun to make and so much fun to receive!

I used the George cartridge to make the card base.  I welded 2 rounded corner rectangles (5.88 w by 4.25 h) together on my gypsy.  Then I added a circle 'window' (3.33 h) from the Birthday Bash cartridge.


The scalloped 'window frame' comes from the Birthday Bash cartridge and was cut at 3.18 inches high.  (Scroll down for a video showing how I made this card)


The candles were cut from the Birthday Bash cartridge.  The center candle was cut at 2.11 inches high and the other two candles at 1.86 inches high.



The fun papers are from Pebbles and I used Baby Blue Bakers Twine.


The fun stamped sentiments are from Sweet Sentiments set 1 & 2


I added stickles to the candles and did some faux stitching and dots with my black and white pens.


Below is the first window card I made with the floating die cuts. Click HERE for my original post on this card.  I love the sentiment that goes with this:  
Outside of card - A hundred hearts would be too few
Inside of card - . . . to carry all my love for you!


Here is a video showing how I made the floating candles window card!



Have a wonderful day!

  13. I love both these cards and hope to give this a go at some point! You have such wonderful papers!
    Thanks for the tutorial. I'm SUCH a visual learner so the video helped a lot.
    Also, in the fall, I was introduced to the "Stamp-a-ma-jig". It's so useful for determining the correct positioning of a stamp. It's now a best friend of mine!!

  18. Hi there,

    I just wanted to thank you for your video on this window spinning card. Loved it. It inspired me to make one too. I have a few kinks I need to work out for next time, but it is not too bad for a first try. Thanks for the inspiration.

  22. I just love this card. I want to make one for my granddaughter's birtday. My cat knocked my gypsy off my table and it is now broken :( I was trying to do this on Cricut Craft room and it is driving me crazy. Is it designed in Cricut Craft Room basically the same way as you did it on your Gypsy. I could not find the scalloped window frame you used on the Birthday Bash cartridge. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
