Can We See Spring Through the Window?


My puppy and kitty and I are sure hoping Spring is on the way! I chose a Clear Views Transparency full of Spring greens to look at through our window. This card is for a challenge for my local stamp club to create something with a tri-fold window card. I created the front wood grain look and then attached the completed piece the wrong way, so mine is no longer a tri-fold. The cute front and back pets are from AI. The window was a bit bigger than the Clear Views transparency, so I added a wood valance (die by Memory Box.) I used distress ink and Elmer's glue to create the wood grain background as I learned how to do here.



Here is a look at the inside of the card. The fronts of the sweet pets are shown over a window sill (also Memory Box.) The large I Love You is a fun die by Die-Versions. If you like it, you need to hurry- it is in the Farewell Sale here so it will not be around too much longer.  All the dies in the Farewell sale are marked way down, so be sure to check out these great deals!

I am entering this card in the "Create Your Own Background" challenge at Tuesday Throwdown, and the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Oh this is so clever! What a marvelous background to place those two little cuties against. I love that you carried their fronts inside the card, too. So sweet! :-)
