I want to share a new technique that I recently tried. It's a window card with stamping around the window.
I started with a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card folded at the top. I put the card through a die cutting machine with a circle template to make my circle cut-out. You could actually use your pick of fun die-cut shapes for this technique--an oval, a scalloped circle, a heart, or ????
Then I used some cute floral stamps and stamped around the outside of the circle using a piece of scrap paper underneath. I made sure that I had different sizes of stamps so I could "fill in" where needed.
I used my fun, bright Sharpies to color my images in.
Then with careful placement I stamped the "Happy Birthday" sentiment and colored it in.
And here's the finished product...a bright, fun window card.
I hope I've inspired you to try this fun technique. ~Cara
