Today I am sharing with you a card that was inspired by a card online. You can find a video of my card here. I think the creator is french, and her name is Lezards de Cilou. Here is the card that influenced me:
Having seen other cards made with Window Sheets as the front of the card, I wanted to have another go! If you would like to see an additional card I made using Window Sheets click here. Here is what I made today:
And on the inside we have the sentiment that is hidden by the birds when it is closed:
This card is so pretty in person! The colors go so well together! I love how Stampin’ Up!’s product coordinates together. When I realized this 19 years ago, I knew that I wanted to get the discount and become a Demo! What I didn’t know is that I would STILL be doing it AND loving every part of it!
Here are the specifics for this card:
Stamps: Free as a Bird, Lovely You (Brand NEW!!)
Inks: Memento Black, Old Olive, Rococo Rose, Blends: Rococo Rose, Old Olive, Soft Suede
Paper:Very Vanilla 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored @ 4 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, Whisper White 2″ x 4″ (for stamping birds, then fussy cut around, Old Olive 5 1/4″ x 4″, Window Sheet 5 1/2″ x 4 1/8″
Misc: 2020 – 2022 In Color Enamel Dots, MultiPurpose Liquid Glue, Stamping Sponges
When cutting the Ornate Flowers border, cut it on the edge of the cardstock so you can place the other edge against the Window Sheet. You will need to color the flowers by sponging over the center of the flowers using Rococo Rose, and the leaves with Old Olive, you will also want to sponge the edges of the cut out with the Old Olive, this will make it blend. To place this on the Window Sheet, use a Silicone Craft Sheet, place a puddle of Liquid Glue and pounce the sponge over the glue and holding the cut out still, pounce the back so you won’t see where you put the glue. This makes it so much prettier on the other side of the Window Sheet.
Hope you are doing well!
