NZSU Blog Challenge – Window Frame Card


When I saw this technique in Jacque’s blog, I thought it was very cool. I’ve adapted mine a little bit, to make a gift card to hold a tea bag (which one of the boys’ well-deserving kindy/creche teachers might receive come Christmas!)


Opened first fold……


And all the way……


This is a very simple card, using kraft and baja breeze cardstock and Ski Slope DSP (only available for one more month, from the Spring mini-catalogue!). I used chocolate chip ink for the sentiment (from the hostess set, Best Yet), and sponged around the edges.

Give it a try!

    This is lovely Bron. Not being a tea drinker myself I can appreciate that others would like it, but you know me – I’d slot one of those thin Whittakers’ chocolate squares in there.

      Haha Steph – if I had some of those, they wouldn’t sit around long enough to make their way into the card………. 🙂

    Wow, what a great card. I love the way you have used the window frame. It adds a great focal point. I only wish I had time to join in the fun of the challenge.
