Welcome to Our Daily Bread designs September Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from the blog of the fabulous Betty, then you are in the right place. If not, you may want to head over to the ODBD Blog and start from the beginning.

For my card, I’m using the fabulous, Keep Climbing set! I also used a portion of last month’s Bookmarks-Trees set for the front window. I just love this mountain scene and the fonts are beautiful in all of this month’s sets.

My card is variation of a trifold, with the front fold being an open window. For the main panel and die cut frame on top, I die cut the panel first using the Spellbinders Labels 8, left the dies in place, put a small circle mask for the moon and sponged on the colors with ink from 2 different Kaliedacolor pads. After removing the mask, I stamped the mountain scene then removed the dies. The largest one became my frame and the smaller one is my main panel. I used the smaller labels 8 to die cut the opening in the top section of my card (to make the window opening) and attached my frame on top.

I stamped the trees from the Bookmark-Trees set on a separate piece of card stock which was also sponged w/ the green inks, and cut around the top of the trees. I attached this mostly to the inside of my window but let the edge trees come out of the opening. So the inside would look neat, I die cut another piece of white card stock w/ the same size label 8 and attached it to the inside of the window. I also added a circle die cut sentiment on the front lower corner, matted on a larger black circle. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Hopefully, you are able to see how it works a little better from this pic, but just in case, here’s a super short (like 17 seconds) video showing how it opens and folds. Sorry about the annoying little ads, but whatcha gonna do? It’s You Tube, so just hit the little x to close them. I’m sure there’s a way to bypass them, but I haven’t figured it out yet.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
