Window Card

Hello everyone! Today I have quick card to share made with Eileen Hull's Sizzix Window Box die.
Window Card - Layers of ink
Many dies that are meant for 3-D projects can be used for other types of projects too, here I used the  3-D Window Box die to make a card. If you want to see an example of this die used to make a Window Box, have a look at this tutorial of mine. The cardbase here is a piece of folded acetate, which is why you can see straight through the widows. I stamped the acetate with a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamp.
The window itself was die cut from mat board, inked with Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean) and misted with Perfect Pearls. When it was dry, I stamped it repeatedly with a text stamp and Manganese Blue Archival Ink.
You can see the shine from the Perfect Pearls better. I placed a piece of lace behind the window and a Filmstrip Ribbon in front of it, which fit with the photo theme of the main stamp.

'Bloom' was die cut from mat board, coated with Glossy Accents and sprinkled with Rock Candy dry glitter. Trinity's flower was die cut from cream cardstock, inked with yellow Distress Inks and the large petals were stamped with a texture stamp and Wild Honey ink. You can see the same flower in another version in this project.
Thank you for the visit!
