The light streams through the vellum on this card, and would be perfect for playing with silhouettes.

For a card that fits into a 15 x 15 cm envelope;


Cut four pieces of card 14.5 x 14.5 and score vertically down the  down the centre.


You can have any shape you like in the centre.  

You can use your large punches to punch a shape too.  Take your scored square of card, and fold it in half.


Draw the shape of the insert on the folded side, leaving enough of a frame to support the card.

So, if you want a circle, draw half a circle, or use a big circle punch upside down so you can see what you are doing.

If you want a heart shape, draw half a heart

All four pieces of card must be exactly the same, so once you have cut the first one, use it as a stencil for the other four pieces of folded card.  For the rest of this project I will demonstrate as if you have cut a square as shown in the photo.  Do the same, whatever the shape of your cut out is!

Cut two squares of vellum 13.5 x 13.5 cm.


Open out one of your folded pieces of card, and put double sided tape around the outside of your cut aperture.  Do not place tape over your folds.

Now place one of your vellum squares on this and stick it down. Repeat this with one of the other square pieces of card

Put double sided tape over the vellum to the right hand side of the card as shown, this time as close to the outside edge as possible.


Take one of the remaining pieces of card, fold it, and attach it carefully to the right hand side.

Add tape round the right hand side again, and place your square with vellum attached on and attach it to the right hand side, with the messy vellum stuck side facing down.

Step 3

Now, fold this section over, ready to add your tape as above – but do not press the fold of the vellum!  We want to try and avoid getting a crease line!  Add your tape as shown on the right hand side


One more piece to go!!!  

Attach your last piece of folded card to the right hand side, then fold it over and attach tape to the top as before.

Pick your card up, and move it to a position where you can join it up.  Remember, we want to avoid creasing the vellum!!!!

There you have your X Window base, all ready to decorate!!! Brilliance inks and Stazon work well if you want to stamp on the vellum.  Let your creativity go!!!!  And please send me pictures of your finished cards!
