Chosen by Kim Day 1

 Kim has chosen for us the theme of Window Cards the idea for it came from Technique Time Tuesday you will find a great tutorial if you follow the link.

As always I have given my instructions on how I put my card together as I have adapted the design putting on extra layers.

So here is my card for today 

This is what I have used:-

Dutch Doobadoo Mask Art Flowers A5
Low tack tape
Colorbox Queue stack - Rainbow sherbet
Small burlap flowers
White card
Black card
5'' x 7'' card blank
Stamp Sentiment- In the frame ditties JGS324
5mm olive green organza ribbon
Dreamweaver Nesting Frames DD001
White souffle pen
White self adhesive pearl in 3 sizes
Cut and dry foam 
Clear sparkle Gelly roll pen
Adhesives - double sided tape and 3D foam pads

And this is how the card was made:-

1 Take a piece of white card and attach the Art flowers mask to this using a low tack tape
to prevent the mask from moving.

2 Take a small piece of Cut and Dry Foam and take ink from one of the pads in the Colorbox Stack.  The colours that I used were as follows:-

Large flowers - Papaya Cream
Medium flowers - Whisper Grey
Small flowers - Glacier Ice

Apply the ink to the design using small circular movements in the specific areas you want the colour to be.  Once all the colour has been applied remove mask and put the piece to one side to dry.  (I left mine over night).

3 Once completely dry use the Clear Sparkle Gelly Roll pen to colour the centres of the flowers and then trim the panel down to the size you want your piece to be.  The next step is to cut the aperture out using the largest nesting frame die, place the die in the position you want the aperture to be, attach with a small piece of low tack tape and run through your die cutting machine.  Keep the piece you have removed as this will be used for another layer of the card. 

4  At this point you need to tie the organza ribbon around the floral panel.  Cut a piece of black card for a backing matt and using 3D foam attach the floral panel to the black.  Use the medium nesting frame die to cut a piece from the aperture panel. The last  thing to be cut is a black panel cut using the smallest of the nesting frame dies.

 5 The medium  panel  cut from the floral background is attached to the black backing card using double sided tape.

6 With the small black panel the sentiment is stamped in the middle of this.  I used the Glazier Ice from the Queue stack.                                        

7 Around the edge of the black sentiment panel I took the white souffle pen and did a series of small white dots all the way round.

8 To put the rest of the card together The black sentiment was attached with 3D foam.  the whole panel was then attached to the  white backing card.

9 The burlap flowers were placed in a random curve at the base of the card using a strong glue.

10 The last step as always was to add the white self adhesive pearls to the card.  The outer edge were the largest, the middle layer were medium and the inner panel were the smallest.

There is your card done, its relatively quick to do and could be used for numerous occasions.

If you are in the UK or Europe and would like to purchase any of the products for the above projects they are all available from The Stampman or your local Woodware Stockist. 

Hope you like the card and your comments are always welcome.
