How to:

Stamp the Fall Window onto white card. Cut out using the coordinating Die, or trim using a precision scissors

Using a craft knife, remove the centre section.

Remove all the window panes.

Colour the window using your preferred medium

Cut TWO pieces of card measuring 8.25″ x 5.25″. Score on the long side at 1″, 2″, 6.25″ and 7.25″
Set one piece aside.

Take one of the scored white card pieces and place the window on the middle section, centered horizontally and towards to top. With a pencil, draw around the inside section you cut away.

Using a craft knife cut out the rectangle shape.

Cut a piece of card measuring 4 1/8″ x 5 1/8″ and a piece of paper measuring 4″ x 5″. Adhere them together.

Adhere the panel down onto the middle section of the card base.

Turn it over to the back and cut out the window, using the card base as a guide.

Cut a piece of acetate approx 3.5″ x 2 5/8″.
Place the Fall Window on the acetate and mark where the open windows begin.

Score where you have it marked. Bend up each side section a little.

Adhere the Fall Window to the acetate.

Apply double sided tape, just around the centre section of the window

Adhere the window down over the opening on the card base.

Stamp the Gnome Backdrop onto white card and colour using your desired medium.
Take the second 8.25″ piece of white card and adhere the backdrop to the inside centre section. Before you adhere it, you can position it to focus on different areas of the backdrop. Cut away any excess.

Cut four pieces of white card measuring 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ and four pieces of patterned paper measuring 0.75″ x 5″. Adhere a piece of paper to each of the card strips.

Adhere the strips to the outer sections of the card front, and decorate the centre panel as desired.

Apply adhesive to the outer 1″ section on both ends of the card front. Set aside to work on the Flowery Gnome.

Stamp the Flowery Gnome onto white card and colour him up.

Cut out using the Flowery Gnome CUT-IT-OUT Die or fussy cut with a precision scissors.

Adhere the card front to the back, lining up the outer edges.

Push in the edges to fold the inner 1″ section back.

Using foam tape/dots, adhere the gnome to the left side of the card front.
