Create a Beautiful Holiday Card with Clear Elements by Martha Lucia Gomez

Hello everyone! It’s a week of Holiday Cards at Imagine and today I am sharing a beautiful Christmas Wreath window card. Adding a clear panel or window is easier than you may think and the results can be amazing. Take a look!

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes


Step 1

Start the window by making 2 pieces. For my wreath, I used the Wondrous Wreath stamp set, this is a layering set is meant to show off many colors. I was careful to stamp with my Misti stamp tool so that later the two separate pieces will line up perfectly on the card front. I heat embossed the first layer of the wreath with VersaMark ink and embossed with Candy Green Embossing Powder. I repeated with Verdigris Embossing Powder for the second layer.

Step 2

I repeated Step 1 on the clear Window Sheet or embossable acetate piece of the same size. I cut the white cardstock into three pieces. After cutting out the center portion of the embossed wreath on cardstock, I added the acetate piece in between using Tear It Tape. This forms the structure for the clear panel. Be careful to line up the leaves between the cardstock and the clear pieces for a seamless look.

Step 3

The sentiment “Jolly” is from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits. I die cut multiple pieces of “Jolly” and pasted over a fun foam layer using On Point Glue to give more dimension. I then stamped “Christmas” using Emerald Green Delicata Ink.
