Window Thank You Card



I made this card with a lot of help from my Gypsy.  It's an A2 size, and the blue card base was created by welding a border from Elegant Edges to a rectangle that I resized from Don Juan.



I then created the flowered layer by welding four 1" squares into a rectangle.  I cut it twice for extra sturdiness, since I knew I was going to pop it up.  For the window, I welded the same four 1" squares to a rectangle, ran the resulting shape through my Cuttlebug with a woodgrain impression plate, and adhered it to the flowered layer.  Before popping up this section on the blue card base, I stamped my flowers.



For my sentiment, I die cut this shape with the My Creative Time Curly Label Die and added the stamped frame from the Inspiring Words {Accents} stamp set and the sentiment from the So Grateful for You stamp set.



Because I cut my card base on a sticky mat, part of the inside didn't look very good.  Easy fix - I just added some green cardstock and a strip of patterned paper to match the front.

Recipe:

Papertrey Ink Spring Rain, Simply Chartreuse, & Rustic White Cardstock
My Mind's Eye "Lime Twist:  Life of the Party" Patterned Paper
Papertrey Ink Woodgrain Impression Plate
My Creative Time Curly Label Die
My Creative Time "Inspiring Words {Accents} & "So Grateful For You" Stamp Sets
Papertrey Ink "Botanical Silhouettes" Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink Ripe Avocado, Orange Zest, Chamomile, & Dark Chocolate Ink
