C4C – Be Inspired by Windows

2018-07-02 C4C442 window

This week’s challenge was a fun card to make.  This week was also a week that one of my customers at the beauty salon was moving to a memory care facility.  I’ve been doing her hair for probably 8 – 10 yrs.   She’s in her 90’s now and one of the sweetest blessings in my life.  .  I decided to make this card for her when I go visit at her new home.

The Steps:

I love the “Window Die Set” from Gina Marie Designs:

Cut the pcs. in this die set the is the 4 pane widow, shutters, window topper and window planter from white cardstock.

Step 2:  Using this cute stamp from Art Impressions, stamp and color as you like.  I used Copic Markers:

Step 3:  Using this set from Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1196 – Garden Edges Rose Hedge

 Cut enough of the roses and leaves to make 3 rose bushes.  I cut the “rose spiral” pcs. from pink cardstock and the leaves from green cardstock.

Step 4:  Make a base card by scoring an 8.5 x 11″ pc. of pink cardstock at 5.5″  fold over for a book fold card.  Trim to 4.5 x 5.75″.

Step 5:  Cut a white pc. of cardstock into a rectangle that measures 4.25 x 5.5″.  I then put this rectangle into this embossing fold by Darice:

Adhere this to the base card centering it with an 1/8″ margin on all sides.

Step 6:  Cut the colored AI stamped and colored to measure 2 3/8 x 3 1/4″.

Step 7:  Assemble the window.  Cut a transparency film that also measure 2 3/8 x 3 1/4″.  Glue the transparency film to the underside of the window.  Add the 3 rose bushes as shown.  Put foam adhesive dots on the underside of the window around the window frame. Now adhere the window to the AI stamped and trimmed pc.

Step 8:  Add the sentiments “Miss You” and “XOXO”  as shown.  (See other products used)  The ivy, bird and tiny lady bug are optional but are also in other products.

That’s it!

Thank you so very much for taking a look.  I hope you will take the challenge and show us your window masterpiece!
