Open Sea Birthday Card
Giggle Greetings!

Pansy Window Card


Connie Stewart, an awesome fellow demonstrator, does weekly challenges on her blog.  For her challenge on May 13th you had to use a window on your card.  I saw one that Penni Behr created and thought it would be great to make one for my Stamp Camp.  With Penni's permission I used her layout and came up with this card.  

This month's Stamp Camp I tried to use almost all retiring stamps and Sassy Salutations is the one retiring on this card.  I used that set all the time.  I am really going to miss it too.  I am going to miss a lot of stamps :(.  Oh well, that just means I have to go shopping in the new catalog for new stamp sets.  It is for business after all.  LOL

I used the colors of Hello Honey and Mint Macaron, both are retiring, and the stamp set Gorgeous Grunge to do the background.  I used the pansy punch to make the window on the card.  I guessed as to where to put it, so you could put it anywhere on your card.  I thought it needed a punch of color and had the Botanical Gardens DSP laying on my desk.  As I was going through the designs I found this cajun craze design and tried it and I love how it looks!  Of course, you always have to have some bling on your card so I added rhinestones to the butterfly and flowers.  

The materials you will need for this card are:

Hello Honey Card Stock #133678

  • cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Mint Macaron Card Stock #138337

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut one at 3 3/4" x 5" this is for the front
  • cut one at 4" x 5 1/4" this is for the inside

Scraps of any DSP, I used Botanical Garden, for the flowers and butterfly.  I used the Petite Petals Punch and the Elegant Butterfly punch to make them.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Stampin!
