How was your week? I was quite busy, so I want to make sure I catch up with crafting this weekend. I am taking the new Online Card Class: A cut above, and I am loving it! If you are interested in die cutting, go over there and sign up!
Here is today's card:
I started by die cutting a card with a window, using one of Hero Arts die cuts for the Silhouette. I used Powder layering paper turned inside out, so the blue peaked through the window. For the front panel, I cut the same window out of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. I stamped it with the Woodgrain stamp using one of the new mid-tone inks: Cup O'Joe. Love it!!!!
Then I took a piece of acetate, and stamped the Exotic Bloom with white StazOn ink. Then I placed the acetate between the card and the front panel gluing everything together.
I wanted the borders of the card to be darker, so using an ink applicator and the Cup O'Joe ink, I added color to the edges of the card. Then, I made the banner with the sentiment, using Powder and Poppy papers, and glued it with dimensionals over the window. Added a couple of pearls to finish it off.
Here you have a close up of the window:
I really love that effect! I will be entering this card into the current challenge over at A Blog Named Hero:

Hope you liked it and have a great weekend!!! Thanks for stopping by!
