World Card Making Day

Hi there!

Happy World Card Making Day!

Scrapbook Nerd is issuing a challenge to all its followers today, and it is all about CARDS.   I am  not a card maker, but i do enjoy  handmade cards with lots of you in it, so I decided to create a card using stamps and a bit of dimension.

For this, I cut a window out of a 5x7 in card.  I backed the window with a piece of cardstock colored with blended Distress oxides  (a few sprinkles of water produce the bleached effect).   To add dimension, i  used a bit of foam adhesive to back the window. 

Then i used Altenew's Bamboo Rose set to stamp a few images onto cardstock.   A bit of watercolor (Prima Decadent Pies palette) adds Fall tones to the flowers.   The images were then added to the corners of the card using some foam adhesive, and the sentiment was then created with some of Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams Collection Chipboard stickers. 

It took  a bit of time to create the card, as i let the watercolor dry naturally, but it was so worth the final product.  I really hope you will join us in the Scrapbook Nerd Friends and Fans Facebook page to check the details of the challenge.  Let me  know if there is any questions on how this came together.

See you around!
