Window card

I am using another set of dies I received for Christmas.  Spellbinders was having a buy one get one free just before Christmas so I mentioned it to my hubby and he said sure do an order, he loves it when that happens, makes shopping easier for him at Christmas :)

I loved the detail of this die and the way it cuts into the background like that, so I decided that would make a great window card.  I had the stamped branch and the flowers already sitting on my desk from another project and that is how this card came to be. I just added some punch flowers that I shaped with my stylus and foam mat.

Spellbinders -- Labels one and Majestic Labels one dies
Stampendous -- Birthday assortment sentiment stamp
Distress stickles -- shabby shutters, flower centers
Offray ribbon

Wow they were saying last night that we reached 72 degrees yesterday, I went out and did a little cleaning up of the yard and sweeping of the porch and stuff from all this wind a lot of leaves and debris had landed up there.  Oh how I love those unexpected warm days that are in the middle of winter. But today we are back to winter again, and they are predicting ice storms starting tomorrow into Saturday.

Hope you are all safe and well where you are.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

I love your idea of using this die for a window card. I have the majestic circles and I wonder if it would give a pleasing window too. I like the white and green look too, very fresh feeling! We are having warm weather today, but I don't think it is sticking around!

This is beautiful! I love the die. I have missed out on several of your cards and the two below are gorgeous too! Great job on all of them!

That die does make a pretty frame, especially with the coordinating die in green on the inside. In fact, all the green and white combined on your card is really lovely and fresh. I think just about anything combined with white is pretty, but green and white is one of my favorites. Thanks for this breath of fresh air on a chilly day!

Very lovely ~ refreshing, uncluttered. By keeping it fairly simple you have really shown off your beautiful new window die. A good present!
Good to hear you are doing well, Connie, hope you get more of those unusual warm days...and send some over here, please!

Doesn't green and white work perfectly, so fresh and clean looking.
A very nice card.

We have some light snow, although other areas of the UK have had worse.
Enjoy your warmer days.

All the best Jan
