Making die cut window scenes with flowers is so much fun for me.  I usually use lots of additional die cut scenery images that create a detailed dimensional scene.  But there is something so pretty about a window with flowers against a clean and simple background.  My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge to create a card with a colorful background.  I thought yellow was the perfect spring color to use with the addition of the green foliage and colorful flowers.  I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Carolina Windows and Shutters paired with Impression Obsession Foliage and Tiny Flowers.

Die cut window scenes with flowers are so cheerful on a card front.

I began by apply strips of mounting tape to the scalloped layer and window and attached them to the card front. The window box was made using the two shutters from the set.  I laid one over the top of the other until I had exactly the width that I wanted and then cut them right down the middle.  I tossed the two left over pieces of shutters, turned the two pieces with the rounded sides face down, secured them in place with double tick tape.  I applied mounting tape to the back of the window box (shutters) and attached it to the card base at the base of the window.

Die cut window scenes with flowers are so fun to make.

The foliage pieces were cut apart to create several branches.  I used one long piece of foliage to hide the seam where the two sections of shutters were attached together and you’d never know it wasn’t one full piece.  I always look for different ways to use my dies. I filled in the window box with foliage and flowers and attached them with glossy accents. The window box of flowers made the card front a little bottom heavy so I inserted a few birds in the scene to draw the eye up for the finishing touch.Die cut window scene with flowers.

Thanks so much for coming by today. I hope you have been inspired to make your own version of a clean and simple die cut window scene with flowers for Easter, Mother’s Day or a Birthday card.
