Window Cards for the upcoming holidays...

 Window cards are a great basic to make for any occasion or theme.  This fall look could be even a Thanksgiving invitation. I used Sizzix Bigz dies and the shutter is from Poppystamps dies.  You can choose to add a Piedemont style top to your window.  There are three choices on one die. the background is embossed brown cardstock. I added in a colored raffia bow and a touch of brown stickles to the tree branches for a little subtle sparkle.  Some of the leaves could be textured and inked.   

 Here is a pretty 3d look for the holidays (this picture is not capturing how nice this is). I think the touch of curtains to the windows really adds that extra detail.  Snow or glitter could even be added to create more of a winter look.  Think about creating one so that you are  standing inside looking out a landscape outside of the window.  A textured brick wall is also a great idea for a background of a window to sit on. I am off to try a Halloween look ....
 Okay so here's the Halloween version.  Thinking about one with ghosts or a skeleton in the window.  The brick wall embossed background would also have looked good with this card.
