Spring Windowbox…

Today it is spring outside…

Saturday it will be winter again.

Words!

So here’s a pretty spring window box with a cheery message that could be birthday, well wishes or any other kind of wishes you need to send (that’s why I love this stamp set and this font is fabulous!)

  • Ink:  Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizazz, Mossy Meadow
  • Stamps:  Painted Petals, Basic Butterfly
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Wild Wasbi 5/8″ satin ribbon,

Digits

  • The Whisper White base card is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • The Melon Mambo layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
  • The Whisper White layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • The window box is 1 1/4″ wide and 3 1/2″ long, angled in trimmer at the same point on each side to for sides
  • I sponged Basic Gray at the top to give some depth to the box
  • Stamp the stems and flowers several times  on the card front (some without reinking). Add a small amount of Melon Mambo to the Blushing Bride blooms.
  • Stamp some blooms and leaves “hanging” over the box edge.
  • Stamp the fern in Mossy Meadow to one side
  • Add box to card front with dimensionals
  • Tie ribbon around this layer only.
  • Add Melon Mambo to card front with dimensionals, then next layer with Tombow glue.  Weight this down for a little bit to be sure it stays straight.

You can see I have layered and stamped the inside of the card and the envelope to coordinate with the card front.  You know how I like to worry Hallmark…

Stamping all these spring flowers makes me happy.  Hope you will find some inspiration in this sample today too.  You can always leave me a comment if you have any questions.

Thanks for stopping by.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…
