Cottage Cutz Window Frame Card




This is the third in my series of posts on Cottage Cutz window dies. This one is called Window and Flower Pot (4x4). This die like the other two cuts each piece separately. You can use it in your Cuttlebug or other cutting device over and over cutting many colors and pattern papers. I've enhanced mine still further with the use of various pieces from my stash.

I really love how the Art Impression stamped kids look peering out from these windows.

Just like when using the other window designs from Cottage Cutz, after cutting the window frame, you must judge where to cut the card base. You use the frame and the Art Impressions kid to adjust and trace the inside of the frame height from the bottom of the card. Slightly enlarge this square and cut it out.


Glue the window frames on both the inside and outside of the card.




Then begin to decorate. The curtains are cut twice and glued back to back before applying to the window frame inside the card.

These card can be used for birthdays and other times too!

Here are some results:




I have found some more window dies, when they come I will be sure to show you the possibilities!
