Card Recipes



For this card, I cut out the circle shape from the right side of the Designer Series Paper.  Where the circle was cut out, I stamped the little "star" stamps to add some interest.  I cut out some shapes using the dies from the Pretty Perennials Bundle.  To make the donkey sparkle, I added Wink of Stella!

When making a "window" I tend to always go to a circle shape.  For this card I decided to switch it up and use a square.  I like the effect!  For the cut out area, I coloured up the sky and ground using yesterday's technique by using the Blending Brushes.  Just so cute!

This card wasn't planned but was a result of making the sky and ground in the previous card.  I wanted to showcase the donkey amongst the beautiful clouds.  For this technique check out yesterday's cards using the Blending Brushes.  I lined the outline of the clouds with a light touch of Wink of Stella.

Card Base - Basic White Thick Cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half

When your patterned paper is "busy" and your main object is getting lost, make a window for it to be showcased!
