Window Card

Hi everyone,


Hope that you are well and that you weekend has been good.


Its time for a new challenge at Come and Get It Challenges and this week it is Window Cards. 

So what would you create for this challenge? 


For some inspiration pop over and see the rest of the Design Team have created and join us, we would love to see your creations!!


For my card I have created a house window, I was inspired by the tutorial I found here which was created by Kristina Werner.


I have used Pear Pizzazz for the base of my card with Blushing Bride, Perfect Plum and Whisper White cardstock.


The curtains have been created using some of the Nursery Nest DSP and my butterflies using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die.  Besides ‘bling’ this Die would have to be the next most used item in my stash :)


The sentiment is from Perfects Words Hostess set and I have stamped it on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock in Perfect plum. 


The sentiment reads “ Amazing, Awesome, Talented… You”


Here is the front of my card:






Stamp set: Happiest Birthday Wishes, Perfect Words (Hostess)

Card: Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum, Blushing Bride, Whisper White

Ink: Perfect Plum

Accessories: Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Decorative Label Punch, 1/2” (1.3 cm) Pear Pizzazz Stitched-Poly Ribbon, Nursery Nest DSP, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



The ends of Whisper White cardstock with the sentiment were  punched out with the Decorative Label and the last part of the sentiment was wrapped around to the inside of the card.


There is also an some  Pear Pizzazz Stitched-Poly Ribbon down one side of the insert in the inside of the card and some more butterflies.  I added “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Happiest Birthday Wishes set just below the butterflies.


Here is the inside of the card…






This little card has grown on me and it was fun to create.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
