Windows

Welcome

This card was made for a New Zealand swap group I am in - and the theme for the month was Windows.  I used a die cut for mine, but others have been very innovative as to how they used the theme - I don't think anyone used the Windows computer operating system for inspiration!


The window was die cut using a S/B Die D-lite Windows 2 from a pale tan cardsatock. 


I then backed the die with kraft paper at the top, a snippet of blue card and I fussy cut the rose from some paper from the MME 6x6 pad In Bloom


The background paper and the sentiment (stamped/sponged with Rhubarb Stalk ink) both came as a freebie from a magazine. 
The card was finished with some bling in opposing corners.

Oh Maxine, your card is so beautiful and romantic! I LOVE the die cut window.
As I am new in card making, I just bought a Big Shot and some dies and soon I am going to use them (first I have to find out how to use my machine). Kisses, my friend.

That's lovely Maxine. I like all the window dies but I am not very patient using them. I'd be happy with a beautiful rose like that outside my window. Kate x xca

Placing that gorgeous rose outside your sweet open window was a brilliant design. How lovely to look outside a window and see such beauty. This is certainly one of your best cards, Maxine (I know I always say that!) TFS & Hugs
