I’ve been enjoying playing with the Welcoming Window Bundle from the current Annual Catalog. This is one of the product bundles that is on the Last Chance List (soon to be retiring). The images are great for making cards for the men or women in your life, and the dies are fabulous. I love that they cut out the flowers and the flower pots but most of all I love the texture on the windows and all of the different pieces.
I thought since I’m using a soon to be retired stamp set and dies, I would also use some soon to be retiring card stock and ink. Bumblebee and Misty Moonlight are current In Colors that have been around for 2 years and as with all In Colors, after 2 years, they retire.
You know me…I like layers, texture and embellishments on my cards, so let’s talk about each in regards to this card. Layers: Misty Moonlight card base + Bumblebee layer that measures 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ + Basic White layer for stamping that measures 4-5/8″ x 3-3/8″. Texture: The window frame and the shelf (die-cut from the Window Flower Box Dies) have a wood grain texture and the brick which are stamped in Gray Granite ink give a visual texture even though the images are stamped directly on the card stock. Embellishments: I added a few of the Brushed Brass Butterflies for a little whimsy and bling.
