My card today was inspired by the CASEd card over at TGIF Challenges.
I love how she created the little window out of the card, and it really inspired me.
My card uses Thick Whisper White cardstock as its base. I used biggest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and cut out a sort of window from the cardstock. I then cut out the same sized Stitched Square from Pool Party and Pink Pirouette cardstock. I used the next smaller square from the Layering Squares Framelits to cut out the inside of the squares.
I stamped the flowers from the Weather Together Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink on either corner of the square and the sentiment on the inside of the card.
I then stamped the umbrella and handle from the Weather Together Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on Pink Pirourette cardstock and cut it out using the coordinating framelits from the bundle.
I played with the placement of the frames and umbrella a bit. When I’m trying to decide where to place something, I take pictures of it on my phone. I find looking at the card in a picture gives me a better idea of how it truly looks as opposed to trying to gauge it in front of me.
Here’s one I thought might work:
And another one:
I finally settled on moving the frames around and placing the umbrella to the upper left hand corner.
