SCAL Christmas card

Here is a nice card made with some SVG files I found on the internet.
Since I've upgraded to Version 2.0 I've been able to upload more files and even make my own with Inkscape. However, this one is just a simple Arched Window file I found on a Scrapbook blog "Images by Heather M" who has some great SVG files; the rest was my ingenuity.

I started with a blank light blue card from a box of DCWV solid textured cards purchased at JoAnn's Craft stores.

Next, I cut an arched window using the SVG file in shadow.

Next, I cut two regular arched windows (one for outside and one for the inside).

Here is the inside left view with the second window cutout attached.
Here is the outside view with the window cutout attached.

I printed out a winter scene I found on the internet and cut it into an arched shape, and glued it positioned so that it can be viewed through the window.

Here is the inside of the card with two snowflakes stamped with embossing ink and glittered with some blue glitter from the "a la mode" fine glitter set by Hampton Arts. The snowflake stamp is on Inkadinkado's stamp set #99599; or use any snowflake stamp.

I also added a Winter Snowflake cutout from an SVG file on DCWV light blue glitter cardstock. There are 3 snowflakes on this SVG file, and I used the top one as shown here.
With SCAL2, you can ungroup the snowflakes and use only one at a time.

Here is the finished front with a Snowflake added in the corner.
All I have to do now, is send it to someone!
Thanks for visiting my Craft Blog, and I hope it inspires you to create your own.
