Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a super-sized Mother’s Day card featuring the Welcoming Window Bundle! After this last Saturday’s post, which was the Stamp It Group’s Mother’s Day Blog Hop, I had a few more ideas for this bundle and thought that a slime-line card would be perfect! On top of that, I was able to use all of the 2020-2022 In Colors to create this wonderful card!!
The base layer is Misty Moonlight cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 9 ¼”, and the next layer is this design from the In Good Taste DSP, cut at 3 ¼” x 9”:
For the card front, you will need:
1. Using Misty Moonlight cardstock, I lightly spritzed with water and die-cut out two sets of shutters, two window boxes, and used the largest Layering Circles Die to die-cut out and emboss with the Painted Textures 3D Embossing Folder.
2. Place adhesive sheet on the back of Bumble Bee cardstock and use the hinge dies to die-cut out two sets.
3. Using Basic White cardstock (or the left-over Thick Basic White from the card base, 8” x 9 ½” and scored at 4”), stamp the larger flower and leaves stamp in Just Jade and Magenta Madness inks and die-cut out with the coordinating die, stamp the ledge stamp in Misty Moonlight ink and die-cut out with the coordinating die, and stamp all three pots in Cinnamon Cider ink and die-cut out with the coordinating dies.
To apply the hinge die-cuts to the shutter die-cuts, I lined up the shorter sides of the shutters and removed the adhesive backing to adhere one set to one of the shutters and then removed the adhesive backing from the other set to line up and adhere to the other shutter:
Using liquid glue, I first started by adhering the window boxes in the bottom corners as shown, adhered each set of shutters, and then the embossed die-cut circle in the middle. TIP-if you notice, the shutters fit perfectly in the middle if you use the bottom brackets as a guide to line up with. I then glued the stamped ledge and pots to the embossed die-cut circle as shown and the large pot and flowers are adhered with mini dimensionals. This piece is adhered to the Misty Moonlight base layer and then adhered this layered piece to a Thick Basic White cardstock card base, cut at 8” x 9 ½”, and scored at 4”:
For the inside, I cut another piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock at 3 ¾” x 9 ¼” and a piece of Basic White cardstock at 3 ½” x 9”. The shutters and ledge are stamped in Misty Moonlight ink, the window stamp in Cinnamon Cider ink, and the flowers and leaf stamp in Just Jade and Magenta Madness inks in the upper left corner. The three pots are stamped in the bottom right corner in Cinnamon Cider ink, with two of them stamped with the corner leaf stamp in Just Jade ink. I finished this off by stamping the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink:
I just love how simple and elegant this card turned out! It was so easy to use all of the 2020-2022 In Colors as they all can coordinate beautifully with this bundle!! I am going to dedicate the rest of this week to Mother’s Day cards with this bundle, so this way you have some inspiration for this set if you already have it and if not, why you should get it! Lol For my next card, I will be using the new 2021-2023 In Colors, which will not only show you these wonderful new colors, but how they all coordinate together as well!
