in response to Terry's comment

Hi all
I have been asked for more details about today's card.......
The cardstock is bashful blue - cut in 3" strips from 12 x 12 cardstock which then gives you 4  folded  3 x 6"    cards per sheet (an important fact when you are cutting for a stamp a stack, as I was).  Fold the 3 x 12 cardstock in half so the hinge is at the top.  Then we stamped the greeting in wild wasabi ink at the bottom of the cover (and the greeting on the inside too).  Then we stamped a snowflake with bleach randomly on the cover of the card. (the bleach did not show up well)  Now I tried several different bottles of bleach and none were too effective - so I am suspecting the bashful blue c/s just doesn't bleach well.  I have had great success with bleaching baja breeze c/s so you might try that instead.  The window is a sizzix die cut (one of the old dies called window, sunshine) using wild wasabi c/s.  We strung the jingle bell on retired silver cord and tied a knot to keep the bell in the center of the cord.  Then we did a bunny ear bow.  Next we stuck a brad through the bow and inserted it into a hole in the bottom of the sunshine array at the top of the window. The stocking is stamped in bashful blue on whisper white and punched out using the stocking punch.  We also had punchouts of the toe tip, heel, and fur from silver glitter paper.  They were adhered over the stamped toe, heel and fur.  The stocking was attached to the window with dimensionals.  The shutters were closed - the bell helped hold them closed.  Hope that helps...
