Family Challenge - (PICTURE WINDOW) & FREE .silhouette file

Hope my fellow Canadians enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving this past weekend.  Now I’m back on track and so…

Once again my talented family have challenged me to be creative.  Ah, I might complain but I do manage to get it done.  The challenge NINA put out was to create a “WINDOW” card like in the following video tutorial.

I’m a bit of a rebel, for sure for sure, so I created my own cut file for the “window frame” - making this for a birthday greeting. 




Designer Paper - Yearbook Collection by Studio Calico


Glitter Modge Podge

canvas sheet - dollar store

Sentiment Stick On - Creative Memories

Birthday Pic Window frame .studio file - Barb Derksen

I designed and cut the card face, frame and backing.

for your Cameo, Silhouette or Portrait



I glued the canvas behind the window, then put it together on the front of the cardstock base.  I rubbed the sentiment sticker onto the canvas. 



I painted the body of the candle shape with glitter Modge Podge and lastly added some bling!

PS - the cut-out birthday candle shape left over from the Birthday window cut is a perfect accent to glue inside the card!

I hope you enjoyed this little show and tell and you will pop right over to Nina’s and Judy’s to see what they created for this challenge too!
