WindowRama Photo Frame Card Kits

WindowRama Photo frame Card Kits

Our brand new WindowRama Photo Frame Card Kits are an easy and beautiful way to send a holiday or everyday greeting!

Simple to assemble, each package comes with enough pieces to make 8-3D diorama cards that stand for display and fold flat for mailing. Envelopes and a small stamp set of greetings are included. You can simply glue them together and add a photo or gift card in the pre-punched slots, or you can embellish them as much as your heart desires.

WindowRama Photo Frame Card Kits are available in Christmas, Winter, Wedding, and Baby themed sets. Baby and Wedding are ideal for Everyday occasions as well. You’ll find them in your local stamping and scrapbooking store or on our website (where your orders are filled by a local, independent store!).

We’ve created a series of YouTube videos that will show you the basics of assembling these easy-to-use products, and they will give you some additional ideas for adding your own artistic flair if desired.

It’s that fun time of year when our Halloween stamps are haunting our sleep with project ideas galore. We love seeing what folks make with our images, and we just can’t stop stamping these creepy/cool images and coloring them in then putting them on cards, home decor, or other fun projects.

We hope you’ll share any projects you make this season with us! We have a Stampendous Fans Facebook Group where folks share their creations and get to tell each other how fun they are! Here’s a link to join! https://www.facebook.com/groups/Stampendous/

Here’s a fun project Fran created using our Beware Witch Cling Set and our new  WindowRama Chipboard kit.
