I wasn't sure this card actually qualifies as a window card, but I decided to include it anyway.


I came up with this airplane idea during the Caardvarks’ shape challenge and I so wanted to submit this card to that challenge! I held off though…just in case my car concept idea didn’t work. Again, I’m still not sure if this constitutes a “window’ card…but it was fun to make!

I created a template based on an airplane image I found on line by first copying it into a word document and playing around with it by enlarging it to a size I wanted. I enlarged it a second time when printing. I wanted to punch “windows” all along the front, but my punches aren’t long enough and I was only able to punch one window. I’m not good with a craft knife, so decided to create the other “windows” by gluing punched circles to the front of the card. I covered the “windows” with cellophane to create the “glass” part of the window. I’d appreciate any suggestions on how to attach cellophane without it getting all gooey looking from the adhesive.

I used a T-pin to outline the wings and tail and added some little sticky dots, chip board letters and a metal sentiment tag, all from Joann’s.

Thanks for stopping by…

I cute my clear material larger than my opening and use a strong two-sided tape on the extra, so no adhesive shows in the actual opening. I love your plane too ... it most certainly does qualify as a window card. The piercing really adds to the dimension of your awesome airplane.
