Card with a View

THIS is the card I originally made for the Stamper's Dream Dreamy Challenge. As you can see...I missed the tiny detail in the instructions that said it needed to be a fall card. Drats! But I like this card, so now I can post it! LOL!

The main image is Stampendous Fluffles Gift . I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers, then cut and embossed using my circle Nestabilities.

I cut a circle window in the card front, then made a red frame for it by putting a circle Nestability inside a scalloped Nestability then cutting. Just be sure the two dies don't touch each other when you do that.

The main image is on the inside of the card, and the red scalloped frame is on the outside.

The sentiment is Thank You Gift also by Stampendous. I stsamped only the *Thank You* on teal cardstock, then cut and embossed it with my Ribbon Tags Trio Nestabilities. The ribbon is May Arts Turquoise Sheer .

The rest of the sentiment was stamped on a panel and inserted on the inside of the card.

I think everything else is explanatory...but if not please don't hesitate to email me.

I'm off EARLY tomorrow morning to see the grands. It's Grandparents Day at their school and there will be a play, meetings with their teachers, and lunch together in the lunch room. Can't wait! I hope to get some good brace yourselves for what's to come! LOL!

Until then......
