My project today was made using Julie’s new Mini Windows die set and Love You So stamp set paired with the Impression Obsession Picket Fence, Grass Border and Tiny Flowers.

I recently received the Penny Black Painted Blooms designer paper and have fallen in love with the fun patterns.  I couldn’t resist mixing the pink gingham paper with the bold and colorful flower paper.  I thought all the bright colors would be perfect to highlight the  white open window and sentiment.

I assembled and attached the two pieces of coordinating paper to the card base with ATG adhesive. I used the window die cut as a template to draw lines to use as a guide for cutting the opening for the window. I attached the window over the opening with thin strips of mounting tape. I stamped the sentiment with black versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I attached the sentiment layer to the inside of the window opening with mounting tape.

I attached the fence to the card base with mounting tape and then attached the brass borders with double stick tape.  I cut tiny flowers from the pink gingham paper and attached them to the grass to create a flower garden.  I also added a few tiny flowers and sprigs on the window to create a floral spray and to draw the eye up to the sentiment.
