Hey there! It's time for the September edition of the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! yay!
Our theme this month is cards that move. You will be amazed at the varied and inspiring samples we have to share!
For my project I decided to use one of my favorite card folds, the Window Card. I wanted a fall theme, so I used Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper and Vintage Leaves.
I pulled out Thoughts & Prayers for the sentiments. Fall colors work well for a sympathy card.
This fun fold provides a lot of options to add sentiments, much more than the usual book-fold style card, but really doesn't take much more card stock.
I also used the coordinating Leaflets Framelits to cut out the window and the leaves. Sponging with Early Espresso ink adds contrasting dimension.
To make sure I placed the greeting leaf correctly through the window, I folded the card closed, then added dimensionals to the inside fold before placing the leaf.
I stamped-off Cajun Craze ink for the leaf, then stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso.
I finished off the front by tying Kraft Rope Trim. After I knotted the ends I frayed it using a Paper-Piercing Tool.
Here's the supply list for my card. You can order all the supplies from my online store: www.carolpayne.stampinup.net
