I am just popping in to share a card that I made this weekend. I recently picked up the cute window die from Lawn Fawn and I hadn’t yet used it. I had the idea to create a card with some flowers on the window ledge.
I used a stencil to add a little brick effect to the background of my card using some fossil ink from Simon Says Stamp – I love the subtle look of it! For the flowers I used a few dies that I had in my stash – I think they were both freebies in magazines at some point. For the leaves, I cut one with plain green card and another from a green patterned paper – just for fun!
For the windows, I layered these up with acetate, so they actually move and they have ‘glass’ inside them. There is also a layer of acetate behind the kitty to make sure i could stick her down nicely.
The cat is from My Favorite Things and my 6yo Piper picked this image because ‘it looks like the pretty kitty is smelling the flowers’. I reckon it was the perfect image for this card! <3 I coloured her with my copics – just a little touch of colour!
On the inside I wanted to add a little something so you can see from the front of the card through to the inside, but when I looked at patterned paper, it seemed too busy. Instead I settled on this neutral coloured paper – it is similar to the colour in the kitty and the brick colour, so it works well I think.
I used the Lawn Fawn Outside In stitched rectangle dies for this. I love that they fit just PURRFECTLY!
Thanks for stopping by. Please forgive the phone photos, I didn’t have any battery in my ‘big’ camera, but wanted to share this project anyway.
A reminder – there will be no Come Craft With Me show this week. We are away at a wedding so won’t be able to do a LIVE YouTube stream. Sorry about that. Keep an eye on the YouTube channel as I will create an event for the next stream, whenever that may be.
