2/21 My First Window Card!
I photographed this card from a lot of different angles trying to capture the "window" for you, but it didn't work. It just looks like layers . . . but really, truly it isn't! It's my first window card ever and even though this card took all day (due to numerous interruptions) I am happy with how it came out.
I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder called Divine Swirl on the red panel. Then I tried out my first set of Nestabilities. I bought this set of large rectangular scallop dies over a month ago, but never quite got around to using them until today. It was a bit of a trick to get everything positioned and aligned, but I managed . . . but just barely as patience has never come to me naturally! I attached a panel of acetate between the white card base and the red panel. The blue that you see is a piece of Cutie Pie paper that is adhered to the inside of the card.
The image is from the Sale-a-Bration set called Merci. I love the whimsical flower springing out of the heart. It was so much fun to watercolor. I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with StazOn Black ink. Then, using my Stampin'Up Markers, I lightly colored the image. Between colors, I blended with my Aquapainter. I just LOVE how the coloring turned out. Then, I carefully trimmed the image out and sticking it full of Dotto Dots, I put it onto my acetate window.
My finishing touches were to add a bit of ribbon and a split color oval sentiment.
