Window booklet card 5x7



Today’s Christmas in July card is a 5x7 see through front card with an extra page so the inside greeting is not visible from the outside. The technique I use to make my own snow acetate with a laminator I really want you to give a try. Just remember to put that ½ in wide paper in the top of the laminator sheet so you don’t jam up your machine. I use a snowman stamp from Crafter’s Companion I had in my stash but any winter stamp will work so go do a stash dive and see what you have.

Directions

1. Take both of the blue 7x10 and tape them together one on top of the other using low tack tape. Place the smaller of the 2 nesting dies and place it on the center of the card front and cut through both pieces.

2. Nest the 2 nesting dies and cut out a frame for the front.

3.Emboss 1 of the card bases with a snowflake folder. Run light gray in over the raised snowflakes.

4. Glue the frame to the outside.

5. Open a laminator sheet and sprinkle the faux snow inside. Place a ½ x 8 ½ scrap paper in the top fold of the sheet and then close. MAKE SURE THE PAPER STRIP STAYS IN THE FOLD. While holding the bottom of the sheet closed with one hand feed the sheet through your laminator. Trim to 4 ½ x 6 ½.

6. Glue the acetate to the inside of the opening. Glue the second 7 x 10 over the top lining up the opening. Only glue the front down, leaving the back as your page.

7. Stamp the snowman on 1 of the white 6 ¾ x 4 ¾ papers and stamp the inside message on the other. Color as needed. Then glue them to the 6 7/8 x 4 7/8 gray papers. Glue the snowman to the page and the message to the front side of the card back as normal.
