Hello, Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. I am delighted to share TWO textured window card designs using one embossing folder today. I am using Window Slats 3D Embossing Folder as my example. The textures on this embossing folder offer so much potential for window scene cards. No matter what style or themes you prefer, you can totally make it your own.

Creating the Window with Embossing Folder

First of all, let's start with the framework. The following are the 3 key steps to create a textured window frame. As you can see both cards are different in themes, however, the steps to create a frame are the same.

Window Card Ideas with Embossing Folder

How to:

  1. Trim the frame: Die cut the white card stock with a shape die, such as Mix and Match Frames Die.
  2. Create a shape for the focal point: I used two types of shape die for the “window” (Nesting Frames Die and Fine Frames Squares Die).
  3. Add textures: dry emboss the frame with Window Slats 3D Embossing Folder.

The Detailed Blending Brushes are really handy for inking up the edges. For the “night sky”, I applied a piece of Watercolor Nebula Wide Washi Tape and added droplets of glitter.

Great cards! I absolutely love the one with the kitty cats. What a neat idea to use the Window Slats embossing folder with the piece cut with the Mix and Matched frame piece. Really adds some great texture and a cool look to the card.
