I love fancy folds for cards so I knew when I found a pop-out window card on Pinterest that I had a the framework.
LeeAnn Greff has a video on how to make her card found on her website here. The center of the front of the card is hooked to a z-fold on the inside of the card.
I used brush markers to color the flower flourish and then stamped repeatedly. The butterflies were diecut and embellished with gems.
I am rethinking this oval shape. The square in LeeAnn's card fits more snugly than this oval so I might have to add a butterfly or flower in the lower left to keep it from pulling through.
I am entering the card in the Sparkle and Shine Challenge inspired by this photo. As I sit here I see nothing but white out my window. With so much snow it is highly unlikely we will see any green this year on St Patrick's Day. I am so looking forward to warmth and flowers and butterflies, so what I see when I look at this photo is Spring. We just have to "wait for it".
I am also going to enter my card in the Retro Rubber challenge because I embellished with a tag using the Luni Stamps "Dream". I have had that stamp and the Hero Arts flower flourish for a years. I also used a retired Glorious Green paper from Stampin Up. The other colors are Soft Sky and Night of Navy. The sentiment inside is from The Simple Things by Unity Stamps.
I hope I wasn't too long-winded today. Thank you for visiting.
Edited 3/9 - My friend, Susanne, reminded me that I could also submit this card on the Hero Arts blog where the challenge is Nature so I am going to run right over there.
