Wake Up Window Flower Box Card w/ Video

posted in: Blog, Janet 0

Hi, I have three cards for this tutorial. My first card using the Boxes of Blooms and Outside Your Window is also a video tutorial.  You can watch the video tutorial on YouTube.  There are two bonus cards using the same products below the tutorial for the Wake Up Feeling Blessed card.

Window-Box-1

MAKING THE SHUTTERS

I adhered two pieces of black and white striped card back to back then diecut the Outside Your Window coordinating die twice.  This die cuts one line down the middle and two score lines at the ends for you to be able to open the window shutters.  I made sure these crease marks were nice and sharp by folding them back and reinforcing the score mark.

Window-Box-2

STAMPING

The Boxes of Blooms stamp set have two different flowers with separate leaf stamps.  And two flower boxes. I stamped the flowers in Orange Peel ink and the leaves in Sage ink.  The flower box is All That Jazz ink. Then diecut with the coordinating dies.

Window-Box-3

FINISHING THE CARD

I trimmed a piece of white card to 20cm high and 21cm long, scored at the 10.5cm mark to make a side folding card base.  I adhered the window frame to the centre with strong scor tape – not the flaps – just the outer edges.

Then adhered the flowers – one in each window and the flower box.  I stamped the sentiment from the Outside Your Window stamp set in Black Jack ink.
