Happy Saturday! It’s time for Crazy 4 Challenges and a new month! Frances is the host for March and this week she’s challenging us to make a window card. I don’t have one of those darling window frame dies or a window stamp so I had to improvise :) Using my Die-namics Rectangle STAX, I made a frame with a view.
I added a blue background for the sky, embossed to add some texture, then added some Die-namics Flat-Bottom Clouds, a Die-namics Branch With Leaves die cut, and a Die-namics Woodgrain Fence. I was inspired by the view out of my stamping room window for this card—I have a bird feeder there and watch the birds while I stamp. I’ve seen a cardinal several times lately so I added a red bird, using my Die-namics Contempo Cage & Stamp Set. The sentiment was stamped on a Die-namics Sentiment Strip die cut and is from Inspired by Spring.
Here’s the inside with a sentiment from Inspired by Caged Bird:
