And, here's a look at what I did with it!
I kept my layout simple because whenever I make a card with a window -- Murphy's Law -- something turns out crooked. Or, I smear ink or... something happens where I need to start the whole shebang over again. I kid you not! So, I held my breath and made a rather simple card! (Emphasis on the whole holding my breath thing!)
My card was easy since I picked up the 123 Create Kit called Prairie Chic. I used the yellow decorative paper from it. Added a little wood grain that I had in my scrap bin. A tag was added thanks to a circle punch, some twine and a little vintage safety pin. I cut the circle thanks to a Spellbinders Classic Circles LG die. Before I matted up my decorative paper, I did sponge on some Scattered Straw Distress Ink so that I actually used the card as my mask. I wanted it to have a glow about it when you opened the card. Thanks to the Silhouette Cut File designed for the S'more Fun stamp set, I had a perfect cut out of that darling lantern image! I colored my image up with Copics (see listing below for colors used) and when I was all done I added some glitter glue at the area where my lantern flame was and then created a frame thanks to some paper piercing.... ta da!
And, here's a close up of the window....
And that, my friends is it!
