Happy Home - Thanks

I was so happy to see the Hearth and Home window framelits return in the new Occasions catalogue - with a coordinating stamp with scenes for behind the window.  Ready for another sneak preview for the new Occasions catalogue?

  • Behind the die cut window is a spring scene with pink blossoms on the trees.  Actually its been such a mild winter that the cherry blossoms were blooming in Washington (Dec. 15/15) After placing it behind the die cut window, it was adhered to the card front with dimensionals.
  • The floral image on the sill is from "First Sight" - the flowers from "Happy Home".  Both were hand cut after being stamped.  Rhinestones were plaed in the center of each flower, then I applied some gold Wink of Stella glitter pen.  The blue bird, stamped with Pacific Point, is from "First Sight" and was also hand cut and placed on top of one of the flowers with a glue dot. The sill was also adhered to the frame with dimensionals.
  • The card base is Pink Pirouette, layered with Whisper White, and then Birthday Bouquet DSP.
  • A 1/4" Pink Pirouette ribbon was wrapped around the card and tied into a knot.
  • Tip:  with a craft knife and the card in the open position, make a small slit in the seam.  Make sure there is a hard surface under the card.
Cut the end of the ribbon to be inserted into a sharp angle and insert in this slot.

Wrap the ribbon around the card on the inside, bringing it forward to the front and tie it into a bow or a knot.

The sentiment is from "Cottage Greetings"
