Another box card - door and window






I really loved the effect of the little box card I made a couple of weeks ago and wanted to try a bigger one to fit my Domed Window die and Window Basket die into. 

I made this one 17.5cm x 19.5cm  and got to work using the stamps from the Topper Stamps to give the Basket weave effect on the window basket and the Country Cottage stamps to make the brick arch over the window. 
The view inside the window is one of the "Through the Window" stamps and I have paperpieced the curtains. 
The background is the CReative Expressions Brick Wall embossing folder and I have inked the folder before running it through the Big Shot.

I have added lots of the ivy leaves from the Window Basket die at different levels and 2 of the die cut rows of flowers at different levels along the bottom ...



 The front of the card has a door made from the waste left over from the same Domed window die
(you can see how to make it HERE)

The inside left  "pouch" has been decorated with the Tonic Studios Dotty Border punch

The tag was made with my Trellis Wall die to which I have added a strip of the Dotty Border punch to keep it coordinated, a couple of Butterflies and 3 of the little flowers from the Window basket die

  3. Your card is so beautiful!

    Here are the printers that I know work. I think I also found a paper that will work too. I'm still testing it.
