OH happy day!!!!


The reason its a happy day...or well it was a couple days ago because that is when I actually made this card...is because I recently got a fun new tool in the mail from the World Card Making Day contest and I finally figured it out!  It is the KNK Zing!  It was a little rough going at first but after some texts and a phone call with Stephanie, (Thanks Steph!)  I got my machine working!  I have a Cricut and have used SCAL for years so I have been saving those free .svg files whenever I can find them.  As I was playing, I found this adorable window card that I haven't used before and just had to make my first (well first usable...) cut!  :)  So here is my card...

I knew right away that DeNami's Pine tree stamp needed to go behind that window!  So fun!!  Now that I am sitting here typing up this post and looking at the card, I am thinking some acetate behind the window would have been cool too!  BUT, I just kept it CAS.  I added some red holly berries and some stickles too!    It was so easy to line the stamp up in the perfect place just by using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.

I stamped the sentiment Season Greetings, and then ran the whole card through with the Lines Impression plate.  I should really stop saying this in every post.  I am sure you are tired of hearing about my love for that plate!  :)

Here is the inside of the card.  I added a little tree trunk and some"snow" with a C1 Copic.  Just a little to ground the tree!  

Thanks for coming by today!  Hope you have a great day!

    how did you get your window centered so perfectly for making the cut?
    Does it require a lot of math...
    because if it does I'm out! :(
