Supplies used (Close to My Heart): A Dash of Joy stamp set, Multi Square Windows Thin Cuts, Sapphire Exclusive Ink, Cardstock (White Daisy and Carolina), White Embossing Powder, and White Daisy Cards & Envelopes.
Also used laminating pouches.

I had this project in the back of my mind all week and wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do. Then, I saw Jennifer McGuire’s video on embellished windows and I knew that would be a perfect technique to use with the Multi Square Windows Thin Cut. You sprinkle embossing powder in a laminating pouch and when you run it through the machine it melts creating this this cool effect! Thank you Jennifer!!
I debated putting the snowmen in front or behind the window and chose in front just because they stood out more but if you used a light amount of embossing powder, they would be cute “outside” as well. I cut the one bottom section out of the window to make the sentiment fit.
Here is a picture of it coming through the laminator, it is so much fun – like magic!

For this next card I used the Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder and created a shaker card. I also cut out more of the window for a new design. There is so much that you can do with this thin cut!

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: A Dash of Joy stamp set, Multi Square Windows Thin Cuts, Cardstock (Candy Apple, Evergreen), Black Exclusive Ink, Gold Glitter Paper, Gold Loose Sequins, Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder, and White Daisy Cards and Envelopes.
Also used laminating pouches.

I had to make one more trying the Silver Tinsel Embossing Powder but I ran out of foam tape. So I backed it with black paper to make it pop more and since our school colors are black and red, I changes this from a Christmas card to a graduation card!

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Giving Thanks stamp set, Reasons to Smile stamp set, Say It In Style stamp set, (Multi Windows Thin Cut, Binder Clip Label Thin Cut, Cardstock (Black and Candy Apple), Silver Tinsel Embossing Powder, Black Exclusive Ink, and White Daisy Cards and Envelopes.

    Such great cards! Love, Love, Love the snowmen. Such a variety of ways for the thin cut squares to be used from using only 3/4, a strip, or the entire cut with a section trimmed for the sentiment. Also, such a great idea shared from Jennifer to laminate embossing powder. I love the graduation card! FYI: I CASEd your idea for snowmen on my blog; of coarse gave you credit…. so fun! TFS.
