Tutorial: Window Card

Good Tuesday, everyone! This week’s tutorial comes from our very own Penny from Penny Ward INK. Thank you for the many requests I received for her work! Here is a very fun card that Penny made using things that we all might have in our stash. (Or variations of…) This card could be done in so many cute different ways, for any season, don’t you think?

Penny’s original post can be seen here. Here is an overview of her tutorial!

The Window Card


 This little cutie is super easy to make. The circles cut from the front panel were done with my Silhouette Cameo.
The edge cut is Enjoy Life by Die-Versions.
(Nancy’s note – the circles, or other shape, could be cut using punches, or you could try doing this with a Cricut using the negative spaces if you don’t have a Cameo! The sentiment edge, “Enjoy” could also be duplicated with die cut or punched letters, stickers or other?)
I stamped the flower image 3 times across a wide strip of white card stock and attached it to the back of the front panel with foam adhesive. A white gel pen along with white Enamel Accents, a few Copics and you are finished.
(Try stamping and coloring first, then attach the “window” overlay using some dimensionals – try “the precious!”)

I love so many things about this card and I’m very excited to see what you guys can come up with for this tutorial! Will you make your windows round like Penny’s? How about squares or other shapes? Thanks Penny, for sharing with us! Be sure to leave her some love in the comments or at her blog. There’s an InLinkz for you to share your window creations with us, too!


  1. So, um, this post has caused me to covet the Silhouette cameo to the point that I have just placed an order for one. Yeah. It’s all Penny’s fault. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    • You will be so happy with the Silhouette !!! There are so many things you can do with it. So happy for you.

  2. I am so happy to see some of Penny’s fabulous work shared here on the S&S blog. This is a great sample and a fun idea too.
