Today I needed to make a masculine birthday card and thought the new Poppy Stamps "Grand Madison Window" die (815) Joan's Gardens now has in stock, would be the perfect place to start. Two pieces of design paper were layered on a 5.5 x 6" white card. I used a scenic stamp from Heartfelt Creations but you could use any outdoors scenic stamp to get this cool effect. It was colored using colored pencils and oms. The window was die cut using vanilla card stock and sponged with several colors of light brown Distress Inks. The window was attached over the scene with dimensional strips. In the upper left corner I die cut the Memory Box "Woven Circle" (98114) using vanilla card stock and sponged it also with Distress Inks. The sentiment in the center of this circle is from the JustRite "Birthday Sentiments stamp set. A Tim Holtz embellishment and a few brads were added to complete the card.
You can purchase the dies I used on this card from Joan's Gardens. She has them in stock right now. Have you been over to see all the new Poppy Stamps dies Joan just posted? One of them is a window box die to go under this great window. While you are there, also check out that cute "Wildflower Patch" die! You can place your pre-order now for any of these dies. Remember, you will not be charged until they are shipped to you.
I want to thank all of you that have sent me birthday wishes today. It has been so fun hearing from all of you.
