THIS IS MY SECOND POST TODAY. To see the box I created using the New Cheery Lynn Dies, please scroll down to the next post.
This card was designed using a few more new dies I received from Joan's Gardens. The window is the Poppy Stamps "Small Madison Window" die (816). The flower box at the base of the window is a new Poppy Stamps die called "Small Flower Box" (823) designed to fit the bottom of the the window frame. The cute little flowers in the flower box were die cut using the Poppy Stamps "Wildflower Patch" (820). The little flowers all cut separately when die cut. I cut them out using green card stock, first, for the base flower which would be the stems and leaves. The die was used again using purple and pink card stock so I could have colored flowers. The flowers were cut off the stems, shaped and attached to the green die cut. If you wanted to, you could just die cut the flowers using white card stock and color the stems and leaves green and the flowers whatever color you want using a marker.
The green vine was cut using the new Poppy Stamps "Ivy Tendrils" (822). I die cut three of them and glued one to the front of the window box, then attached the other two behind the flowers. The window box was attached with dimensional dots. Behind the window die cut, I added a piece of the Cheery Lynn "Anastasia Border" (B136) to create curtains inside the window. A piece of card stock was cut to fit behind the window and it was sponged with Distress Ink.
The design paper is from Basic Grey. The pretty border is one of the new Cheery Lynn dies just released called "Country Girl" (B157). You can use ribbon through the openings but I decided to add a piece of card stock behind the middle section. There are very pretty little pierced flowers on this border and I didn't want to cover any of them up. The butterfly is one of the Cheery Lynn 'Mini Butterflies" (DL 112) In the top corners I added two Spellbinders corners. The sentiment and pretty frame around it are from the JustRite "Friendship Blooms" stamp set. The frame was stamped and cut out with with scissors. The sentiment was stamped and die cut using a Spellbinders petite scalloped circle. A marker was used to add the dots around it.
Be sure to go over to Joan's Gardens to see all the new dies Joan has added to her store. It is so fun to create cards with dies and she has a great variety to choose from.
