Spring Window Scene

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog.
Sending a happy St Patrick's Day to you all. I read some interesting articles on what Patrick did during his lifetime. It's a far cry from what it's turned into this day and age.
Anyway, let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for my DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. Here are the details on my card creation.
Step 1: I decided to create an outdoor scene. Started by using a brick wall stencil and white 3-D molding the wall. I stenciled on a light gray cardstock.
 Carefully removed the tape and set it aside to dry. I like how some of the brick have the appearance of slight imperfections. Just like real brick. This panel is 3 7/8" x 5 1/8".
 Step 2: On this step I cut my window, vine and flowers. I love the detail of the flowers in this die. Used sweet sugarplum, rich razzleberry and daffodil yellow cardstocks.
 I cut my 2 chickies from daffodil yellow cardstock and sponged the edges slightly with wild honey distress ink. Just to add a little depth.
 Step 3: Ready to start some card assembly. I used dimensional adhesive on the window and chicks. I like the dimension it gives to your card. Since you are looking into the window, I added some sweet sugarplum cardstock so it would look like a painted wall. The Spring grass is an older CottageCutz die.
 Step 4: I wanted to get a sentiment on this card and I just wasn't quite sure how to do that. Thought about stamping on the egg shell or on the grass but neither of those ideas really resonated with me. Then the lightbulb went off and I decided to add the Joy phrase to the window.
It is the perfect size. And, this die is currently 80% off. You can pick it up for just a $1.00 in the online store.
I also cut 3 butterflies in the same colors as the window flowers. They are from the Spring Meadow die.
Step 5:  To complete my card I used the sweet sugarplum cardstock. The card base is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  Well, that's it for me for this post. I hope I have given you an idea for an Easter card.
Until next time ........God bless.
