If you have come here from Diana's blog then you have come from the right place, if not, you will want to start at the Creative Cuts & More Blog so you don't miss anything along the way.

Here is the Tutorial:
5- Window Card Kits – these come precut and pre-scored!
Killer Red Sticky Tape
3-4 extra pieces of cardstock 4”x 5 ¾”
stamps, ink and things to embellish with
Diecuts – I used the fall leaf diecuts from Creative Cuts and More
Designer Paper of your choosing cut at 8 ¾” x 5 ¾”
Step 2: If you want to use an addition with words, I used white cardstock and added the words. Cut your cardstock to 4”x 5 ¾”. Using your bone folder, score at ¼”, 2” and 3 ¾”, proceed to fold.
Step 3: Stamp the image so it will appear in your oval. To attach the layer to your cardstock, place Killer Red Sticky Tape on each ¼” side you have scored and attach as the image shows (maybe a little straighter than mine) making sure your stamped images appear in the oval centered.
Step 4: If you want to add a Spinner or suspended Image to your card, you will need about 5 inches of cord and tape. Once you have the suspended article stamped or embellished as you want it to appear, attach with tape on the back side.
Step 5: Attach the first layer of your pre-cut Window Card Kit to the second layer, putting tape only on the sides.
Step 6: To put it all together, place Killer Red Sticky Tape along the edges. Once that is complete, CAREFULLY attach the edges of each piece to one another. When you are finished, it will look like a Star when you look down upon it. See top of post for the image!
Step 7. If you want to add another layer of Designer Paper like I did cut your paper to 8 ¾” x 5 ¾” and lay the smaller layer from the Window Card Kit (the one with the center cut out) over your designer paper centered. Taking a pencil trace the Oval out. This will give you your guide to cut the oval out. I used a Creative Memories Oval Cutter, but you could use the Coluzzle too. Once you have the oval cut out, attach the Designer Paper to your project and decorate it as you would like too.
