Wishing for Spring Card
My base is folded to make a 5 1/2” square card out of white card stock. Using my Imagine and the stock images, I flooded a 4.8” square with green selected from the colors pallet on Kate’s Kitchen. I then flooded a second square sized at 4.6” with a red gingham type pattern from the Kate’s Kitchen pattern pallet. I used the layers feature on the Imagine to cut my image of the window. All layers were cut at 4”. I layered the red mat on top of the green mat and adhered them to my card base. I attached the first layer of the window scene to my red mat using my ATG Gun. I then used foam tape to attach the curtains which I wrapped some rusty red ribbon around to make them pop a little more. I also attached the flower in its pot with foam tape. I added a dark turquoise pearl to the middle of my flower and some faux stitching to the green mat and a few doodle dots to the curtains and pot. I also added some faux stitching to the ribbon on the curtains. My time is pretty limited this weekend for crafting so had to keep the card fairly simple but I am pleased with how it turned out. I didn’t add a sentiment as I am not sure what I will use the card for, could be a birthday card, thinking of you, or a hello card. Thanks for visiting.
