Project of the Week

Dear Friends,

Okay, so I'm not quite to the point of getting a project on every week! I'm completely in awe of some of the SU! demo'rs who put one up nearly every day...

This week's project is a terrific quick Christmas/holiday card. My scanner is pretty old, so you can't completely see one of the coolest parts of it - the window sheet cover of snowflakes. This crystal clear, medium weight plastic window sheet has sparkly white snowflakes printed directly on it. I layered the entire card front with it, held down with silver eyelets - hardly ever use those anymore, but they're sure useful for materials that I can't glue! Enjoy!


5 1/2 by 8 1/2 Night of Navy cardstock, scored down the middle to create the card

2 3/4 by 4 1/2 Whisper White c/s

3 by 4 3/4 Brushed Silver c/s

scraps of Whisper White and Brushed silver

5 1/2 by 4 1/4 Printed Snowflake window sheet (available 9/1 in Holiday Mini catalog)

two Stampin' Dimensionals

four silver eyelets

Night of Navy ink pad

eyelet setter, pad, and 1/8" punch

Modern Label and Word Window punches

Lovely as a Tree and Teeny Weeny Wishes stamp sets

double sided adhesive

two paper clips

Two-Way Glue


1. Stamp trees on Whisper White c/s with Night of Navy ink. Layer onto Brushed Silver c/s. Attach to front of card.

2. Place Snowflake window sheet on front of card and hold in place with paper clips. Punch a hole in each corner (a Sharpie is good for marking position of holes so they're not crooked like mine!) Use silver eyelets to attach window sheet.

3. Stamp saying on scrap Whisper White and punch out with Word Window punch. Punch silver c/s with Modern Label punch. Use Two-Way glue to attach saying to label and attach this with Stampin' Dimensionals.

*An awesome alteration of this card would be to stamp the trees in Whisper White on Night of Navy. Then the snowflakes would REALLY show up and wow everyone! Now I wish I'd done that! If I get a chance, I'll do one tomorrow and show you the variation.

You're done! You could do dozens of these in an afternoon and completely awe your friends and family!
