Window Shelf with Plants


It's Anja again. We're having holidays here in Slovenia and it's so good to have a few days off of work. I'm actually going on a vacation for a few days to get some much needed rest and get some new energy that will hopefully last till summer :)

I made a card today, using Shelf w/ Plants die from a Llamas & Botanical release. But you should also go and check the new Mother's day release that's already available in the store and you can get it for 25 % off. I'm still waiting for mine to arrive and I look forward to use it in my next project.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Shelf w/ Plant, Springtime Window),
- Distress Oxides (Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade, Forest Moss, Wild Honey, Evergreen Bough, Gathered Twigs, Peeled Paint, Black Soot, Walnut Stain, Aged Mahogany, Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves),
- craft card base (15x15 cm),
- white cards stock for background (14x14 cm) and die cuts,
- embossing folder (bricks),
- adhesive foam pads,
- pen,
- scissors,
- paper glue.

First I die cut the window and colored it with Distress Oxides. I put adhesive foam pads to the left and right side of the open window to add dimension.

I cut the shape of the window with scissors. I glued the window on top, so when you look through the window it looks like the wall in smooth.

Then I cut and colored the shelf and the plants. I also used adhesive foam pads to glue it in front of the window.

I cut white card stock for the background and embossed it with embossing folder. I used Distress Oxide Vintage Photo for the edges.

When I had everything cut and colored I just glued the pieces on craft card stock. And this is my finished card.

Have a nice Sunday and I'll be back in a week.
