Flutter Friend-CQC


So honesty time.  I attended the Regional Stampin' Up event in February and saw some really great projects using window sheets.  I came home and put them on my next order.  Fast forward to AUGUST, my first window card!

It's been a while since I did a challenge.  I still look at them every week but just haven't participated....till I saw these fun colors over at Colour Q.


So up my alley!  I love bright colors and I decided to pull out those window sheets and use a Clean and Simple design (my favorite).  Final result....

I decided to make a square card so I started with a 4 1/4" square piece of Basic Black.  I then cut my window sheet 4" by 8" so I could fold it and have a 4" square and attached it to the black piece using glue dots.  The only negative is you have to cover the glue somehow, so I attached a piece of 3 3/4" square Whisper White card stock in the middle.  I've seen some great CAS cards with frames, so I took out my trusty ruler and Black Stampin' Up marker and made a 1/2" frame around the white card stock.  I took my Friendly Phrases stamp set out and inked it up with Black ink.  For the butterflies, I used the Beautiful Wings embosslit and ran my colored card stock through the big shot.  I did this two times for each color as I attached with glue dots  to the top of the window sheet again and didn't want them to show when you opened the card so I attached the same butterfly on the inside.  (Hope this makes sense!) Before I attached them though, I added our new Mini Brads (love). 



I love the look of this card and may have to use window sheets again....hopefully not 6 months from now!
