PTI MIM #291: Patterns Behind Die-Cut Windows

This week it's Dawn McVey with Make It Monday for Papertrey Ink. She shared with us how she adds patterns behind die-cut windows so I just had to give it a try. If you want more details on how to play along, head over to Nichole's blog. You can view Dawn's gorgeous card on either website. Since I don't yet own Gran's Garden, here's what I came up with for a thank-you card. My SU Basic Gray card base is a bit smaller than the usual size so the Garden Grace floral spray could hang over the edges and still fit in an A2 envelope. 

Since I heat embossed the popped up Garden Grace die-cut, I should have watercolored them or used my Zigs rather than stamping over the embossing powder. I'll try that next time. Using Green Parakeet, I ink blended the "thanks" die-cut which is four layers thick. Added three sequins to finish it off with a little bit of bling. And there you have it for today.

Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments.
