Flower Window 04140
For my “into the window” card,  I stamped the beautiful Hat w/ Flowers close to the corner of 4 x 5.25 piece of white card stock, colored it with Copics then lightly penciled in my frame using the die as the template. I cut into & around the parts of the hat & flowers that would stick into the opening, placed the die under the hat & die cut the opening. I used a slightly larger stitched die to emboss the stitching around the window.  The greeting & ferns were stamped on a slightly larger piece of white, colored & I used the BG10 Copic to add the aqua around its edge before attaching it under my slightly elevated window. Another fern was fussy cut & added on top of the window along w/ a valance die cut. I threaded a blue button with Peapod Stripe & Denim Stripe twine & tied them in a bow. 

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
