Today I wanted to create another card with the Poppystamps "Small Madison Window" (816). I think there are going to be so many fun things to do with this die. My card is 5.5" x 6". I used two pieces of design paper from the KaiserCraft "December 25th paper pad. The background for the window was cut from a piece of white card stock, with the next to largest, Spellbinders "Label Twenty-Two" and I used the same die to cut a piece of design paper from the Kaiser Craft paper pad to layer on top of it. Next I traced around the outside that same Spellbinders die, using white card stock, to create a mat for the die cut label. I traced around the die again for a second mat. Both mats were cut out with scissors. The window die was also die cut using white card stock. All the white pieces were sponged with Distress Inks.
I used the Penny Black "Enjoy Life" stamp set which includes these cute little birds. The holly is die cut using the Cheery Lynn "Holly Flourish" (B148). This is such a great die to use with your Christmas cards because the holly is small and fits really well around either flowers or other images. I die cut the flourish several times and cut it apart to fit in and around the birds. The corners are from Spellbinders "Lace Doily Accents". The berries were added with some really old red "Crystal Lacquer".
Now I need to tell you what I did with the second Label Twenty-Two I cut out with scissors. I used it for the inside of this window image.
As I told you, this is a thank you card. I used that second image to die cut the Memory Box "Pop Up Thanks". This is a small pop up and works really great on the inside of the card. This picture shows the top lifted up so you can see the "Pop Up Thanks". A small piece of the Cheery Lynn Holly Flourish was added. You can see I also used Distress Ink to sponge around the edges of the inside of the card.
As you know, you can purchase all the products I use from Joan's Gardens. I hope you enjoyed seeing another way to use this Poppystamps Small Madison Window Die and the Memory Box Pop Up Thanks..
