Many Thanks - Guest Designer at Card Patterns

Hello!!  I am so excited to share my card with you today.  I am the guest designer this week at Card Patterns because I was the Super 6 winner a couple of weeks ago with the card you can see HERE.  When I first saw sketch #125, I immediately thought of doing a window card and so here is what I came up with:

I cut out the window by welding squares on my Gypsy and cutting them out on my Cricut.  I also cut the butterfly and window box from my Cricut with the Martha Stewart Cakes (butterfly) and Freshly Picked (window box) cartridges.  The embossed background is an embossing folder from Tim Holtz and the twine is from The Twinery.  I added some texture to the window frame and the window box with a stylus....you can see a mini tutorial on how I do that HERE.  There is a piece of plastic in the window frame so it looks more like a glass window.

I inked all the die cuts as well as the embossed wood grain with some Colorbox Fluid Chalk and finished it off with a button and SRM Sticker


I hope that you can hop over and check out the new sketch at Card Patterns blog and join us this week.  Their sketches are fabulous!!


Hugs,
Amy
