Window Flower Card & Gift Tag




I decided to finally ink up my Stampin'Up! level two hostess set "Itty Bitty Buds". I knew when I first saw this set, it was a must have, as the flowers are perfect for a card like this! I am a "pack-rat" and save everything, so the "window" of the card was made by using a piece of "acetate" I got from some of that annoying packaging that most things come in (you know the kind I mean, where you almost destroy your item, just trying to get it out), anyhow, I save most all of it, even the smaller pieces, and use it all the time! I used my Scalloped Square "Nestabilities" from Spellbinders to cut my window. Behind the window on the inside of the card, I stamped "blossom" sentiment from SU's "Bloomin Beautiful". All the flowers were inked with the SU Stampin Spots Bold Brights and though it doesn't show well, all the flowers are "popped" up with various size pop dots.

I used the cutout piece from the window to make a matching tag, added a little ribbon, some bling jewels and thats it!
