Happy Dance Window Card by Lynn Dionne

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be creating a fun birthday window card using the Ai Perfect Duet Set (4999). To set the scene for our dancers we will be using the Ai Valentines Journal Paper Pack. We will use the pretty plaid for the front of our card and the happy little hearts paper for the inside of the card. Let's die cut these panels using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies Set (5063). We can also die cut just a small portion of some of the pinkish/red paper for the floor in our scene.

Next we can stamp and color the couple and the boom box! All of today's coloring was done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Flesh Colour, Sugared Almond Pink, Wine Red, Haze Blue, Aquamarine Blue, Emerald Green, Lt Gray, Gray Brown, Mid Brown, Beige.

Now let's go to the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543) and grab the window frame die. We can die cut this frame from the front of the card panel and the plaid paper at the same time. I'll show you a little trick for getting this to line up perfectly! Remember to die cut an extra window frame for the inside of your card.

Now we can cut a piece of acetate to the size of the card and tape it to the front of the card. Now let's add the plaid paper over the top of the acetate. Also, add the frame to the front of the card and add the second frame to the inside of the card. This will hide the adhesive nicely!

Next we can add a sentiment for the front of the card which says "Get your happy on!" and a sentiment for the inside which says "You don't stop dancing when you get get old when you stop dancing!". These sentiments are from the Ai Be Happy Laugh Lines Set (5279). We will die cut theses two sentiments using the banner die from the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543). I'll show you a fun trick for using this smaller die for your larger sentiment!

Let's go ahead and do the final assembly and then add a few pretty pink pastel hearts to the front of the card!
