Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that I made using the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper, and the Windmill Fields Dies. The sentiment came from a stamp set in the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog and is in the upcoming 2022-2023 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog as well, but more on that later. Anyway here's a look at the card I created to share with you today.
I thought it was a fitting sentiment for a card with large tulips and windmills. Because who doesn't dream of seeing things like this?
Windmill Fields Dies:
With the Windmill Fields Dies, you'll get everything you need to build a picturesque windmill scene, including a row of tulips, fences, a bicycle, pieces to create a layered windmill, and more! These dies will work perfectly for a card front so you can send a little dreamy escape to all your friends. The largest die measures 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" in this 15 piece die set. Plus you can actually create an interactive card with the windmill by not adding adhesive to the rotor blades and just use one of the Round & Square Brads instead.
I started to do this but decided to just make it stationary instead. I didn't want it to move around inside the envelope and tear when it went through the mail. I will probably make a square card and do it where the blades spin.
To make the windmill stand on the card since I popped up the center panel I had to double up the Stampin' Dimensionals on the bottom of the Windmill. To lock the blades down by the way I placed a Mini Stampin' Dimensional behind the blade that is behind the embossed sentiment strip. The sentiment by the way came from the Through It Together Stamp Set. I love a good sentiment set and I think they are a must for anyone no matter how big your crafty stash is. You can always use a great sentiment set. And these are small and are great for sentiment strips which I like to add to my cards.
To finish off the card I added the sentiment strip and a few of the Brushed Brass Butterflies sprinkled around the card. I also added a small strip of the matching designer series paper (DSP) on the inside of the card to tie in the whole fell and keep things cohesive.
