Christmas Window Ledge Card

This Christmas Window Ledge Card is fun to make.  When I found the template for a window ledge card I thought about what design to make.  Then thought the obvious choice was a window.

This card is simple and fun to make.  

You will need:
        • Heavy cardstock for the base
        • Scraps of cardstock
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • Download File

Paper Selection

The paper for the base of this Christmas window ledge card must be at least 100 lb weight or the card will not stand up.  Patterns work great for this card.  It does not need to be double sided because you never see the back.  You need a pen that shows up on the paper.  I used a jellyroll white pen and love how it stands out.  Did you know that you could use any pen in your Cricut?  See the trick here.

 

Cutting the Card

This is fairly easy to cut.  Just keep track of the little pieces.  I kept losing the snow pieces for the window.

I used a white gel pen to do the writing.  You can get a Uni-ball white gel pen here.  They are great, but don’t buy a cheap one.  They don’t work as well.

Assembling the Christmas Window Ledge Card

Re-crease all the folds.  From the bottom back they are a mountain fold, a valley fold and a mountain fold.

Assemble the center window scene from back to front with the snow going on the back of the window panes at the bottom.  Then comes the window and the light blue wall.  Next glue the curtains and finally the valance.  See the final product to see the exact placement.

Lastly glue the window scene onto the center of the card.

And your Christmas window ledge card is done!
