I originally created this project as a guest designer for a UStamp with Dawn and Friends event. You can read the original post here: Snowflake Chain Card
I keep the videos for these paid events unlisted for the first couple of months and then make them public once the video has "leaked out" via public Pinterest links.
As it turns out, this is a great day to share this video as it is another example of making a Pop 'n Cuts Window Card, which is the subject of today's *NEW* tutorial for how to create windows on the front of Pop 'n Cuts cards that will perfectly line up with the pop-up. I used the same technique for this Snowflake Chain card as with the new Coffee Card, minus the removable tape, which was an idea I thought of later. (To see the video for the Coffee Window Card, either scroll down to the post below this one or follow this handy link: December Designer Challenge - Anything Goes!)
For this card, there's another technique showcased as well, which is constructing a chain of items that will be visible through the window in the closed position, but then expand into a chain as the card is opened.
You could use this same technique with any image - think about hearts, or butterflies, or gingerbread men, or ???.
Here is the video tutorial:

For this project I used these three Karen Burniston Pop 'n Cuts for Stampin' Up! dies:
