Recently my friend, Kris, posted a card like this on our Yahoo Group. I actually had the same tree and wanted the Cardinal die set from Impression Obsession because I have several dies that they would work so well with. I just had to CASE her card.
I used an oval die to cut the window in the white layer and simply added it to the black card base. The white tree from Simon Says Stamps. The tree was cut and added to the top of the card. I added an extra Cardinal to my card.
For this card I decided to cut down the white layer and matted it with black before adding it to the white card base. With the black card base I will add a white piece of card stock inside to stamp a sentiment or write a message. By using the white card base, I don't need to do that and still have the same amount of layers.
There is actually enough room at the bottom of the front to add a sentiment with a small font, but I may choose to leave mine the way they are now. I actually made two of each style.
I don't make enough cards to do craft shows but one of my daughters is quite crafty and is going to have a table at a craft show or two. I told her I would pay a portion of the table rent if she would have a basket of my cards and she agreed. I'll keep my fingers crossed for both of us.
Thank you for coming by today!
