This beautiful card was inspired by a card by Kathleen Wingerson, a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in the US. She called it the “packing tape” technique, literally using packing tape, to apply the Dazzling Diamonds glitter (133751), to the window. I’m sure I’ll be leaving a trail of dimensional backs and glitter up the stairs when I head up for dinner lol. I layered gold DSP as my first matte, over the Basic Black card stock base, then cut a hole in the top matte (Very Vanilla – ) using the 2″ punch. To get the raised element around the edges, I scored 1/4″ from the edge on all four sides, using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool (122334). It’s a good idea to stamp your sentiment now. The sentiment, in Memento ink (132708) , is from the Snow is Glistening stamp set (149742). I laid a piece of packing tape over the hole, from the back side of the card stock, sticky side up to the front (good side) of the card stock. Then, I sprinkled the Dazzling Diamonds over the sticky tape, burnished it in with my finger, then shook off the excess. On a piece of 3×3″ Very Vanilla card stock, I used the Sheet Music stamp (143970), to create, you guessed it, the sheet music, using Early Espresso ink (126974). I applied snail adhesive to the right side of the music paper, and placed it behind the glittery window. Before I layered the top matte, I placed a small bow and ribbon “hanger”, then attached the top layer to the gold DSP with Dimensionals. On the inside, I glued in a piece of Very Vanilla card stock as a liner, for your personal message.
