City Crafter 354

Hello!
Well, it's officially Spring Time here but you wouldn't think it looking out of my window... Still the days are getting lighter and longer and that's a good thing.

Today is City Crafter Challenge day and this week Marina is hosting for us, asking us to create a project that features a window or aperture


Here's my card


I didn't have any design in mind when I made this ... I'd bought the MFT stamps and dies (Buildable Bouquet) coloured and cut them and that was my starting point... For the front I cut an aperture in a piece of card and added some dottie acetate that I had in my stash...


Then I realised that I couldn't just add it to a card or I wouldn't have a window... Duh! So I had to cut an envelope shape that I could add the front to and still have a window...


I kept back one flower to put inside so I could make it visible from the outside... Then it occurred to me that I could have just stamped one inside! Mush brain or what?

Whilst you're still laughing, hop on over to see what the rest of the team have to share with you this week at CCCB... 

I'd also like to enter this card at the AAA Card Challenge where the theme is Die Cuts


Have a great day!

Such a beautiful card Ros! I love all the wonderful colours of your flowers, and how you have layered them really creates a dimensional bouquet! Very clever with your envelope shape for the card backing, keeping the beautiful window and design intact! hugs :)

Absolutely gorgeous card, Ros & so unique! I've never seen dotty acetate--love it! You've outdone yourself this time! Yes, you could have stamped the flower, but using the die cut one is extra special!
