Today I am sharing a window card created using the Painted Christmas Suite. The window was created by cutting out a larger label and a smaller matching label from the Seasonal Label Dies.
My card was CASED from a sample in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. CASE stands for Copy and Selectively Edit. When you CASE, you can copy it exactly change it up a bit. Today is a great example showing how to substitute one stamp set for another.
The Stampin’ Up! sample was created using the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set and the So Many Snowflakes Dies.

For my CASE card I used the Christmas Season Stamp Set and the coordinating Seasonal Christmas Dies. The texture on the Crumb Cake Cardstock was made using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.
The pinecones peaking through the window is paper from the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper package. The Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic ribbon is part of the suite also. You could easily make this a masculine Birthday card by changing the greeting and ribbon.
simple stamping steps and measurements
- Cherry Cobbler (base): 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
- Crumb Cake (embossed): 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Basic White (stamped): 2″ x 8 1/2″
- Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper: 3″ x 4″
- Fold the Cherry Cobbler cardstock in half on the score mark to create card base.
- Then glue the designer paper to the center of the card front.
- Next create a window by cutting out the the Crumb Cake cardstock using the label die and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.
- Once you have the Crumb Cake cardstock window cut use the Time Worn 3D Embossing Folder to emboss it.
- Now that you have it embossed the Crumb Cake adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Stamp the Pinecone with Crumb Cake Ink layered with Early Espresso, the berries and sentiment in Cherry Cobbler Ink and the stem Early Espresso, Pine Boughs in Garden Green Ink.
- Once you have all the images stamped cut them out with the coordinating dies and adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
