I have a window card to share with you today.  At least that is what I call it.  You can purchase card bases with opening already cut in them, but we have the tools to do that ourselves easily.  Please let me know what you think.


Country Livin’ 141925


With the exception of the window, this is a very simple card.  There are a couple of techniques added however.  But first the window.  The birthday card that I shared on Friday had a Melon Mambo scalloped circle as a layer.  I used that negative to sponge color onto the white inside layer of this card.  I then used the same layer to cut the window from my card base.  I was going to add another layer over the top, but instead just added the ring around the window.  That is done by using the two closest sizes of the scalloped circle dies.  Easy Peasy!!

Here is a view of the inside.  I have not stamped another sentiment yet.




I love this stamp set, Country Livin’.  It is unique to most of the Stampin’ Up! sets.  It goes for male and female cards and is perfect for quick and easy cards.  Sadly it is on the Retiring List 🙁

I stamped with Soft Suede Ink and then colored with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  Ideally I would have stamped first, masked the boots, and then sponged the background.  Of course I didn’t think of that until after I had made the background.  A bit of the blue carries through onto the boots, but in a way it adds the “worn” look the boots need.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I appreciate you and hope you will return tomorrow.  I have the complete list of supplies at the bottom of the page.
