Give Thanks Window Card

Good morning! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend! I managed to get a tiny bit of crafting in here and there, mostly did lots of cleaning! Cleaned out our "wreck" room (I mean, "rec" room!) with my hubby's help - since I needed someone to vanquish the spiders so I could clean! Then he put his back out, so we laid kinda low for the rest of the weekend.

Anyway, I wanted to make another card for the Horizontal Sketch Challenge over at Moxie Fab World. Here is my take on the sketch:

And here is the sketch:

I used my Cricut and Gypsy to cut out the card front using Elegant Edges cartridge.

The leaves behind the windows are from Unity Stamps, as is the sentiment.

I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing poweder, and added some stick on pearls next to it.

Finished off with some machine stitching, and pop-dotted the frame from the background so that the leaves look like they are really through a window. 

Thanks for visiting!!! 


  1. Gorgeous! I love those fabulous fall colors, gives me hope that fall really is just around the corner! Love the windows with the leaves peeking from behind and your stitching is wonderful! Hey...my hubby is the designated spider vanisher around my house also! I've done a lot of things over the years...dishes, diapers, windows, etc...but I DON'T do spiders...lol!

  2. How creative! I love the windows! What a great idea to use the Gypsy to create the windows! The shape of the windows becomes anything we want! Great job!

  3. I Really, Really, Like how this turned out! Such pretty fall colors.... I may even scraplift this idea from you! I hope you don't mind.... Simple and pretty! LOVE IT! :o)
