Wacky Window Backgrounds

Hello craft friends,

Mary here with two different sized card backgrounds using the Wacky Window Card Panel die.

The A2 (4.25 x 5.5) card was quick and easy to make.  After I ran the die through, I kept all the inner windows in place adding tape to the back of the panel, because I didn't want any of the inner windows to move while I brushed inked on them while holding the die over the panel. Inking the windows this way was faster, kept the card cleaner and gave each inner window a tiny white border.  Next I mounted the panel on black and then onto the card front.  I finished the card with a black card stock die cut Happy Happy Happy by Frantic Stamper and a black card stock die cut Flower Wish by Tutti Designs.

The slim (3.75 x 8) card took a little longer to make, but it was the first one I made.  I cut a piece of card stock (I used mixed media paper) a little wider and longer than the 3.75 x 8 size I needed and ran the die through the first time die cutting the top of the slim panel.  Next, I measured how many more inner windows my slim card would need length wise and aligned the die for it's second pass, this time positioning the top cutting plate away from where I didn't want it to cut into any of my previously die cut areas.  

Unless you are going for a very clean look, don't worry is your partial die cutting leaves blemishes or marks, in most cases, you'll be able to hide them with other elements you'll be adding to your card. 

I used a rainbow selection of Distress inks for my inner windows and finished the card with a couple of black card stock die cuts Happy Happy Happy by Frantic Stamper
