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!
