Carolina Girl (Cely)
I did another "magic window card" and this time paid more attention to the measurements and did very best to try to give you some instructions.  One particular part is hard to explain on paper so I did a little video on that section.  I also did another video on the completed card.  I used Sassy Devil Girl from Bugaboo Stamps.  I did two with the image in the "center" and one with the image toward the "top" of the card.  I'll save one for another day on Catch The Bug.


Step 1:
8.5 x 5.5 base cardstock (I chose black)
Turn it on longest side and score 1/2" on both edges; put a sharp crease on both scores and close card

Step 2:
With card closed, I place a 3" scallop circle template on the center of card and "taped lightly to hold it in place"
I then opened up the card and placed my punch over the scallop and punched out "one" side. Next, I closed the card again, took the 3" scallop template and placed it back in the exact location of the punched area and made sure it was taped on the other side where I needed to punch.  Open up the card and punch the other side.

Step 3:
3 3/16"x 5.5 piece of cardstock (I chose orange). Open up card and place orange piece in direct center...should be about 1/2 inch from each side. Now, tape lightly the orange to the black.  Close the card. Next, I took a 2.5" circle template, placed it in center of card, taped lightly, drew a light pencil mark around circle, removed the circle template and cut out the circle with my circle cutter.

Step 4:
(Easy, but instructions are hard to follow). Two 3.25"x 3" pieces of cardstock.  (I chose black to match my card base.) On the 3.25 side, score a 1/2" line "on just one edge.  Now, do the same to the other 3.25x3 piece of cardstock. See the video as to line up these 2 pieces on the card base. Once finished, you should have the 2 pieces centered and behind the orange piece.

Watch video at this time! (I do not speak in this first 15 seconds, but rather try to point out what to do.)

Step 5:
 Open up the card COMPLETELY FLAT.  Place a 2" circle template in center of card and lightly trace. I used the same procedure as I did to cut out the 3" scallop. It doesn't make any difference which side is on top when closing, but make sure one side is on top of the other.  That's it!

Step 5:
You will ONLY tape the top and bottom of the orange piece.  You must only tape these 2 edges so that the 2 black pieces will be able to slide.

    Great tutorial, thank you for sharing it w/ us.
    I met a lady from Greenville today at CKC in Charlotte and she knew who you were, but I can't remember her name. She said she gets svg files from you, (which doesn't help because I'm sure 100's of people get files from you.)
