Heartfelt Wishes Window Card

This card has been stamped with Hero arts H1107 Wood mounted Sunflower Gal and CL272 All Occasion Clear Stamps. I also used a cream DL window card.

  • Stamp the Sunflower gal stamp twice onto YES Card with black ink and emboss with clear powder. I prefer this YES Card for stamping and colouring images. It has a nice smooth surface and allows blending of the coloured pens with water. Click on the link to purchase. Colour one image completely and only colour the flowers of the second image. I used tombow pens to colour. Refer to pic for colours. Cut out the coloured parts and put aside.
  • Stamp Heartfelt Wishes onto a 1.5x5cm piece of YES Card and emboss as before. Run the blue pen used to colour the dress of the gal around the outside edge of the little stamped rectangle. That helps to tie your colours together.
  • Now for the window. Cut 3 pieces of jute string - about 10cm lengths. Cut a piece of acetate about 7cm square. Stick the acetate over the window on the front of the card. Then stick down the string - 2 diagonally and 1 horizontally. refer to the pic.

  • Next sew an 18mm wooden button onto the centre of the acetate - where the jute crosses. I used black DMC floss and a needle. Leave some of the floss loose as in the pic.
  • Cut some hessian. 10x6cm piece and 8x3cm piece. Fray the edges a bit and stick it to the black overlay of the window card. Use doublesided tape.
  • Then sew around the inside edge of the stuck on hessian pieces with a sewing machine. Use black cotton and a zigzag stitch.
  • Stick the overlay to the main card with double sided tape.
  • Refer to the pic for placement of the stamped images. I used craft glue to stick them down flat on the hessian and then magic mount to raise up the flowers on the basket and in the gal's hair.
