Window Cards

Here are three card fronts I did with the Madison Window Dies. They were SO MUCH FUN to create, and honestly, I got most of my inspiration from my 9 year old daughter.

~She's the one who thought of tearing a brown strip of paper and putting dirt in the window box (I absolutely LOVE the look it gives them!).
~She's the one who used my frond punch and put just 3 pretty flowers in each box (I tend to overcrowd them!).

~She also placed the shutters on top of the window instead of in back like I usually do.
 ~She's the one who ask for some "glass" for the window -- I used some leftover clear packaging from scrapbook supplies.

So...more than 1/2 the credit goes to my daughter for coming up with some pretty nifty ideas for me!

Here's an up-close look at each card front:

  • Dies

I made the siding by cutting strips of paper and lightly running a marker along one side of it. Then I glued the strips, one on top of the other - starting from the bottom.

I absolutely *adore* these cards! I love all the attention to detail, and I love those dies. I would have a hard time giving these away. :)
