I created this window card featuring I Arted and Holly Pixels Art Supplies. It is inspired by a card I made previously on my Instagram that I wanted to recreate using some of my favorite Ink Road products.
I started by repeatedly stamping the “makers gonna make” stamp from I Arted in grey ink onto grey cardstock for a tone on tone background.
Next I stamped the pencil image from Holly Pixels Art Supplies many times and fussy cut them out. I lay them out to decide where to cut the background to create the window.
I temporarily taped the background to an a2 card base, and cut thorugh both the background and front flap of the card at the same time.
I added a black piece of paper to the front panel of the card, then glued strips cardstock over the window. These strips are the same width as my fussy cut colored pencils and will hold the front of the card base together.
I glued the stamped background paper on top of the cardstock strips. This sandwiches the strips in between two pieces of paper making them stable.
This is the view from the inside of the card where you can see the back of the window.
Now that the card base is constructed it’s time to decorate! I glued each of the pencils from Holly Pixels Art Supplies on top of the strips, then colored them in.
For finishing touches I added a sentiment from I Arted (colored to match the pencil erasers) and some clear sequins for a bit of sparkle.
On the inside of the card I adhered a strip of grey cardstock to be a background to the window, then stamped the sequin image from I Arted into the corner.
