here. I changed the design a little - adding window 'panes' and using a front and back panel as opposed to a folded card taped together.
This is the card with the 'blind' closed. Before folding it - I stamped the leafy heart and sentiment 'my heart' from the WMS set My Heart on the patterned paper.
a heart on it that says - is yours - finishing the sentiment on front (My heart...... is yours) How cute is this???!!!
woodgrain background using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, then trimmed it to look like a tree trunk with a couple of branches. I sponged the edges with the same ink and layered it to a piece of Kraft core Core-dinations paper that I had sanded a little. I laid my already completed front piece over the panel to help me place the tree and heart on the back panel. I stamped the heart and sentiment from My Heart on a scrap of Vintage Cream, cut out the heart, sponged the edges and adhered it to the tree. The sponging really gave depth to the trunk!
Below, you see the back of my front panel - you can see how I laid the little strips to make the window panes - just taping the ends to the edges and the thick foam tape I place on all 4 edges so when I layered it over the back panel it was lifted up a bit to give some space between the window and the tree. ( Not so pretty from 'back stage' huh??!!)
I know this probably looks tricky to make - but it is REALLY easy using the step by step tutorial on SCS. And what an impressive little card it makes don't you think??!!
