Wainscoted Sketch

When I first saw this Bedtime Story Sketch for this month's WMS Pyjama Party I was immediately reminded of Wainscoting, probably because the large rectangle reminded me of a window, so that is the direction in which the sketch inspired me.  

I've used the WMS Vintage Christmas Backgrounder for the wallpaper, and various stamps from the WMS 'Twas the Night Before Christmas set (including this dinky little Santa) to decorate the Memorybox Grand Madison Window.  

The Wainscoting was created using my Fiskars Trimmer as a guide and a bone folder.  I scored a line 1cm down from the top and then from this point to the bottom at 1 cm intervals.  I could have done more fancy scores but I thought this simple wainscoting had a more country cottage feel to it.

I'm not sure if I'll add a sentiment - perhaps on the inside.

Thanks for Stopping by,


  1. SO pretty! I have this die and have never seen it as a shaker - it looks wonderful with the little scene inside and the candles in the window. Well done Kate!

  2. Such a clever design, Kate!! Love how you made the window die into a shaker, that is awesome!!

  3. Wonderful stampings on your shaker card window! such a creative design using the sketch!

  4. This is a very pretty shaker card. I like the delicate pink colour and the great design A nice touch to have the candles in the window.
