Hello, my friends. How are you all doing? I hope you all are hanging in there. I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you. Besides going to work, I stay at home with the family and try to distract myself as much as possible by crafting, cleaning, baking, helping the kids with school work… I wish I could just sit and relax but I just can’t 🙁
Today’s card was obviously was inspired by our current reality. Most of us are now looking at the world through a window by staying as safe as possible in our homes. I pray we all do our part, so that we can be with each other in person again soon.
To begin, I stamped the PEONY TRIMMINGS out and then colored them in using Copic markers. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen that I colored the peonies during Kathy Racoosin’s last 30-day coloring challenge.
I then used the PEONY TRIMMINGS coordinating dies to cut out the flowers.
Next, I created the shaker window. I die cut all the pieces form the DOTTED PATTERNS SET 4 and used most of them to make the window scene. To the center frame, I glued a piece of ACETATE and then added the two inside window frames that I colored with a grey marker.
I then added FOAM TAPE along the edge of the window frame, filled it with SATIN RAINBOW CONFETTI added the cloud-like banners from the DOTTED PATTERNS SET 4 to create a curtain-like design and then closed the shaker up with a piece of cardstock that I had blended with some Atelier Inks from Ink On3 to make it look like a sunrise.
To the card panel, I blended out the brick background using the SQUARE BRICK stencil and Iced Spruce Distress Oxide ink. I then glued the shaker window in the center of the card front and glued the scallop frame to the background. I then glued the peonies onto the card front.
To finish the card off I stamped out the thinking of you sentiment from the PEONY TRIMMINGS and then die cut it out using a banner die from the PEONY TRIMMINGS coordinating dies.
I hope you find this card inspiring. Please stay safe and stay home and keep looking out your windows! As a health care worker, that means so much to me as it increases my chances of also staying safe and keeping my family safe.
Thank you for stopping by and until next time… Happy Crafting and Stay Healthy!
