Christmas card with a window

Happy Friday morning friends.
It is a coolish rainy day here in my neck of the woods. We have really had some heavy rains over the past few days, with some sunshine, but heavy downpours and small hail that managed to knock all the flowers of my newly planted rosebushes and small annuals. At least the buds on the roses are in tact and hopefully in a week or so they will show off their lovely blooms. We were told that we were going into another 'El Nino' phase, but we have had a heck of a lot of rain the last month, so maybe El Nini is going to come later...I hope not.

Anyway on to my card...another Christmas card. This is the second card from the class last week and the ladies made such gorgeous ones, all using the same products.

 
 It is a centre step card with a window cut into the centre. I saw a card that was made by Sylvia recently, but couldn't find the link to it.

This is what I used:

Paper - red mirror board and patterned paper from Michele R Designs

Marianne Design dies - Door, candles and star banner.

Nellie Snellen - Holly branch
Printed picture - Nellie Snellen

Finished it off with glitter and Pontura pearl maker for the berries.

 





This is a side view, to show how the cutout window slips into the back of the card.
                                                                                                 I will enter  this in some challenges:
