Spring Is in Full Bloom Circle Window Card: In Full Bloom Bundle | Pajama Crafter Stamps

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing a fun little card with a circle window in the center. This is an easy card design to place your focal image front and center to draw attention to it. You can step this card up or step it down depending on how you want to create it.

Gather Your Supplies:

My Card today features the In Full Bloom Bundle (from Pajama Crafter Stamps). As well as the Checkered Scallops Embossing Folder (from Spellbinders). I colored the wheelbarrow and the butterflies with my Ohuhu Honolulu Brush Markers. You will also need a little Vellum Cardstock that you can heat emboss on, and cardstock for your card base and card front. I picked a different color cardstock for my card front that would tie into the colors of my coloring.

Creating a Window Card:

When you create a window card like the one I am sharing today you will need to cut your window opening first before you dry emboss it. I cut a piece of Peach Sorbet Cardstock from Spellbinders and cut it to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" to fit on the entire front of the card. To cut the opening roughly in the center of my card front I used the Everlasting Circles Etched Dies from Spellbinders. I then took the same piece of cardstock and used the Checkered Scallops Embossing Folder to dry emboss the panel.

Next I cut a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and used my Cloudy Stencil and Grassy Stencil (both from Lawn Fawn) to create the scene for my card. I only did the ink blending for the window just slightly larger than the circle opening. I used Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink and Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Ink for the grass layers and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink for the clouds.

Once I had the panels completed I placed the scene panel onto my card base with a little liquid adhesive. Then I centered the embossed window panel over the scene using small pieces of Instant Dimensional Foam Tape. This allowed my panel to pop up slightly and would allow me to be able to place the wheelbarrow onto the card so that it looks as if it was being rolled into the scene; once I was ready for that step.

At this point I could move onto the coloring process. I had stamped out my wheelbarrow, watering can, and three of the butterfly (3 times) from the In Full Bloom Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto some alcohol marker friendly cardstock. I then colored the images with my Ohuhu Honolulu Brush Markers. Once the color was completed I used the In Full Bloom Dies to cut out each of the images.

After the coloring was completed I added my detail work with my Sakura White Bold Gelly Roll Pen and then added a little sparkle to the butterflies and the flowers with my Stardust Stickles. White this was drying I prepped my small piece of Vellum Cardstock with my CottonTail Embossing Powder Tool. I heat embossed my sentiment with Polished Gold Super Fine Embossing Powder from WOW Embossing. After the heat embossing had completely cooled I attached the sentiment to the card front by placing small dots of adhesive behind each of the letters of the sentiment.

To finish off the card i added a little Instant Dimension Foam Tape behind the wheelbarrow, where it would need the extra support, sitting inside the window and liquid glue on the rest. I did the same thing with the watering can as well. I then attached my three butterflies to act as an embellishment on my card. Just a little side note here if you wanted to you could easily change the window card into a fun little shaker card. Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you have a fabulous day and I will see you again real soon. Happy Crafting!
