Winter Christmas - Recessed Window Card

Hi there,
Today I have another different WOW fold to show you.  It is a very easy card to make , with just a few steps to create the completed card.  Size of the opening and placement on the card can be altered to suite any image you want to use.  I did alter the original directions by adding another 1/4 of an inch to the length of the card so I could score it twice at the centre fold and create a boxed fold.  It helps with the shape of the card to take up the recessed window and also helps the card sit better when closed. 
For the main image I stamped the Lovely as a Tree trees with Tsukineko Memento London Fog.  Then I used a Scallop Circle Punched piece of card as a template and a sponge to create the clouds with Baja Breeze.  I stamped the Skaters on another piece of Whisper White card with Stazon and cut around them, after colouring, sponging and applying Dazzling Diamonds to the frozen lake area, I mounted the lake and skaters with dimensionals and placed it in the forefront. The designer paper is applied as a step in making the card.  For embellishments I used punched snowflakes and a sentiment that are mounted on dimensionals.  I then decorated the inside of the card.  I just love the finished card.  I found the directions on Splitcoast Stampers under the Monday Technique Lovers Challenge TLC 206 Recessed Window.
