Cards with Windows and Fancy Edges

I finally got the video put together for the window cards and a few with fancy edging too. The pre-cut cards in this video were purchased at my local Michaels store. They come 8 in a package (with the envelopes too) and can be found in the dollar bin. Yes, that’s right – eight card bases with envelopes for just one dollar. You can’t even make them for less money!

But just in case you don’t have these available in your area I’ve also shown you some rather inexpensive toys/tools you can pick up in most any arts and crafts store and accomplish on your own as well.

Here’s the YouTube Video:

I hope you’ve enjoyed this series so far, even though I am running late on it. There’s one more to go too. In that posting I’ll be sharing with you some cuts and folds that are a tiny bit more advanced from the simple single-fold and 1/4-size cards.

If you want to see more ideas for adding your line-art to greeting cards, be sure to visit the gallery inside our community forums. Folks are starting to post their creative card works. So there’s lots of inspiration there to be had!

Remember to stop all the hustle and bustle of the season once in a while and enjoy the holiday with your family and friends!


  1. Quick Hint: When you score on the Scor-Pal your indented line goes on the outside of the fold. The ridge formed when you score is on the inside of the card. The reason why….when you score you are bending and stretching the paper fibers so they will lay perfectly OVER the fold. If you fold with the indent to the inside you are mashing the bent fibers back against each other. Indent – outside; Ridge – inside.

  2. Wow Cindy! Haven’t seen you for a while online at but now I can see you have been working very hard! I love your cards. love ‘n greetz, Ellen
    Commenting on your YouTube Channel didn’t work for me, I did gave it a LIKE though.

  3. I’ve been doing cards for several years and still you came up some new ideas and hints. my favorite was adding the bit of doodle frame and the inside (left side) of the ornament cutout. It just added such a neat little bit of pizazz. The video was very well done. Thank you Cindy
