Victorian Window and Spring Butterfly Notecard

Hello everyone!
Here I am (Simona) with a new card showcasing beautiful
CottageCutz dies from CottageCutz This N That release -

I decided to make another step card... :).
The base of the card was cut out of brown cardstock.

The Spring Butterfly Notecard was cut out of BoBunny County 
Garden collection and then dry embossed with a brick
embossing folder. Once embossed I inked it lightly 
with Dried marigold Ranger Ink
to give the bricks a little bit more depth.
I also cut the notecard once
out of brown cardstock and glued it to the back of the BoBunny
notecard, to make it sturdier. 

As you can see at the back I used the negative cut out from the same
paper and placed another DP behind it.

Victorian Window was cut out of white cardstock and colored
with copics. 

and positioned it where I wanted it to be. Then I drew
the lines with a pencil on the inside of the window.
I removed the victorian window and placed the butterfly notecard
on my cutting mat. Then I took the X-Acto knife and cut
out the window slightly bigger then where I drew the lines.
Then I glued the window in place.

On the inside of the card I glued Vintage Chair with 3D pop dots
and also one of the birds from Victorian Birdbath.
I also used the same birds and place them on the outside of the card.
The birds were cut out of white cardstock and sponged with 
Dried marigold and Mustard seed Ranger Inks.

To finish the card I used Ivy and Grass Border.
Everything was cut out of white cardstock and
sponged with Peeled paint Ranger ink.

Here is a side view of the card.

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you have a lovely day.
