NEW Crafter's Companion Mediterranean Window Die

Hi! Today Crafter's Companion USA is releasing a NEW Die'sire Spring/Summer Die Collection.  Just wait till you see all these wonderful  dies!

Today I'm sharing the new Mediterranean Window Die. It comes with 2 dies - the window and the flower box. I used both on my card, but you can create with them individually.

I reeeeealllly love how this turned out! Best of all - YOU can make quick. The receiver of this card will think you spent hours on it! 

The window is die-cut and embossed. I adhered a panel of vellum behind the window only (not the shutters). Before I attached the window with foam tape to the blue cardstock panel, I adhered a die-cut heart flat down on the blue cardstock. I just held the window over where I wanted it to go to eyeball where to put the heart.

For the flower box, I die-cut the piece 2 times. On the first one I sponged green and red inks to shade the flowers. Then I colored the flower centers with a white gel pen. Then I added crystal glitter on all the flowers. For the 2nd die-cut piece, I cut off all the flowers and layered it on top of the first piece with foam tape. Then the entire piece is adhered to the bottom of the window. 

The sentiment is stamped on kraft cardstock, then cut down to make into 2 pieces. Both pieces are adhered flat. The larger heart is popped up with foam tape. The 2 tiny hearts are glued flat. That's pretty much it. You can change up the colors, use stars or flowers instead of hearts, or any other fun ideas you have. I can't wait to make some Halloween and Christmas themed "window" cards!
