I’ve already expressed how much I love the Welcoming Window Bundle, and the feeling continues.
Today’s card actually began with the flower vase. I used a Window Flower Box Die for cutting, and was happy that Vellum Cardstock made it look like glass. The flowers were created with two-step stamping on my Stamparatus. After positioning the greenery on Basic White Cardstock, I stamped with Soft Sea Foam Ink. Then, I placed the flower stamp on top of the stamped greenery, stamped with Petal Pink Ink, and cut the bouquet with its Window Flower Box Die.
Next, I cut the window from Thick Basic White Cardstock, using its Window Flower Box Die. And, the Vellum was handy, so I decided to add “glass” window panes by gluing a piece to the back of the window.
The shutters were stamped in Sahara Sand Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, cut with their die, and attached with Dimensionals.
The window is surrounded by white bricks, created with Basic White Cardstock (5 1/4″ X 4″) and the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.
Prior to embossing, I used the window die to cut a hole where I wanted to place the window. This led to attaching the brick layer with Dimensionals on the Thick Basic White card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″), for additional dimension.
The sentiment is from the Welcoming Window Stamp Set. I stamped “wishing our paths crossed a little more often” in Crumb Cake Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, 4 3/4″ X 1/2″, also attached with Dimensionals.
Talk about wonderful inspiration! I think you can see how I came up with my card design; the sketch and the photo from Fusion.
