Hey guys ... this week almost all the challenges had something to do with flowers and butterflies.. So, i left my vintage style to do something quite the opposite.
For a while now i wanted to a window box card and since i am into paper peicing these days i though why not.. So, before you see my card i will show a pic i d/w from the internet as my inspiration, because i wanted to do a really real looking window and window box!!
Isn't this absolutely gorgeous!! And here is my card.....
So, every detail you see is hand cut. I designed a template for myself and then cut up the pieces all free hand, the drawing and cutting!! I justused dimensional tape between each layer. And used an acetate sheet for the glass pane. I used some beautiful lace for the curtains and just messed around till i was happy with the look and taped them down.
To construct the flowers i punched them out and shaped them and layered them. The leaves you see are bought they are simple velvet leaves with stems. I shaped the leaves and had them glued first. Then i filled it up with the flowers i added the vines in the end.. The butterflies are actually bought from a local sewing store, they are plastic, so i just folded them at the center and glued them wherever i liked.. I just loved the butterflies they were perfect with the color scheme of this card.
I have to say i had a lotta fun making this card but it has a lot of skill involved and it took me an entire day to get done..
I just love this card, its definitely one of my favorites and it does look like that window doesn't it???
