Cut Out "Windows"


All of the different rectangles were cut out of the white cs using the smallest dies in both sets of Spellbinders Matting Basics Card Creator (A&B). I just lined them all up like a puzzle and ran it through my Cuttlebug....that was the easy part! Then I trimmed small pieces of pretty rose and butterfly paper (Webster's Pages "Petite Papers") to fit in each window. Two of the windows have HouseMouse stamped images: Contented Mudpie and Maxwell's note. They are colored with colored pencils.


The pale blue flowers and the leaves are die cuts from Tim Holtz Sizzix "Tattered Flower Garland". Tiny glass beads were used for the flower centers. "Happy Anniversary" was added using tiny sentiments from Stampabilities. And almost everything is held together with Glue Dots!
The pink paper flower, the glass beads, the ribbon and the twine are all treasures from my gigantic stash.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Sunday!
