Creating a window frame die card is lots of fun. All the different window frame shapes creates an interesting background that works with die cut images as well as stamped images. It was fun to pick and choose the vase shapes that would work best in each window. What would you put in each window? You probably have tons of fun stuff in your craft stash to play with.
For this project I used the Rubbernecker newly released Vases and Shelves, Leaves and Greenery, Garden Stems and Small Flowers #3 paired with Small Ivy, Tiny Flower Buds, Tulip Tops, Small Flowers #1, 7 Window w/Pierce Stitch and Kittie Says Phrases #1.
The Window Frame Die and Stamped Sentiment
- Use white cardstock to cut the window frame.
- Cut a slim strip of white cardstock to stamp the sentiment on.
- Use black ink to stamp the sentiment on the white strips.
- Apply mounting tape to the back of the window frame sections.
- Attach the sentiment strip to the mounting tape on the back of the window opening. Note: I knew it would be hard to get the sentiment stamped perfectly in place on the card base ti line up with the frame. So I cheated and stamped it on the white strip and attached it to the mounting tape on the back of the frame.
- Attach the window frame to the A2 sized white card base.
The Flower Vases
- Use pink, yellow and purple cardstock to cut out all the vases and flowers. Note: I like to work with three coordinating colors on projects like this. Adding too many colors on a project can be distracting and take away from the beauty of the design.
- Cut the foliage using green cardstock.
- Use glossy accents to attach the foliage sections to the back of each frame. It is fun to pick and choose the different foliage pieces to work with the different shaped vases.
- Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad. Assemble the layered flowers and attach together using glossy accents.
- Attach all the flowers to the foliage using glossy accents.
- Use mounting tape to attach all the vases to the card base. Note: I played with the vases and laid them out on the window frame to get the best design before attaching.
Rubbernecker has four different frames that supply creative dimensional backgrounds for cards. I thought I would link some of my projects to show you fun ideas of how you can use different themes to create interesting cards with them. Die Cut Frame, Window Card with Flowers, Christmas Shadow Box and Framed Die Cut Flower Bouquets. Each frame opening presents an opportunity to fill it with an interest scene or image. You can find more inspiration on this Pinterest link.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my window frame die cut and all the different vases of flowers. I’m sure you could come up with lots of ideas to create your own card. I especially love the small window frame opening that allows for a short sentiment. By the way….have you had the chance to check out my new all occasion “Kittie Says” Phrases #1 set? I don’t use phrases on my card much but when I do I like them to be short and sweet. I worked with Rubbernecker to create a set that works for all occasion. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a relaxing Sunday. Be careful out there!
