Lynda Kanase Design Team Window Tri-Fold Card

Hello my crafty friends

Today is the day when Lynda Kanase's Design Team shares their projects. This month Lynda asked us to use her Window Box Impresslets set. This is an embossing folder that also die cuts the shutters/window at the same time it embosses the lovely stone background. It also comes with dies that you could use to fill a window box, but of course I had to do something a little different with the dies.

First of all, I used a very old paper collection from my stash. I wanted to show you that a new die set can breathe new life into older products you may have. I've also been itching to make another trifold card so you are looking at the first of three panels. I cut the window/shutters again from brown card stock (using a card stock shim really helps cut that window), snipped them out and adhered the brown over the patterned paper ones. Then I added a double layer of the sweet butterflies that are included in the set. Oh, and I added two small glitter dot stickers to look like handles or knobs to open the shutters.

The patterned paper is double sided, which is always fun when you are doing a trifold card. I added some stickers and printed embellishments from the same paper stack - then layered die cut flowers/vines and the butterfly over the printed label. I positioned the label on the second panel so that only the flowers show through the window.

When you open the second panel, the third and centre panel is revealed. I added another printed embellishment from the paper package, and stamped Happy on it. Then I stamped Birthday below and added a die cut butterfly - both the stamps and larger butterfly are also by Lynda Kanase.

I hope you will check out the rest of the Design Team's projects - their blogs are listed on the right. Lynda will have her project on her blog later this morning, and you can find her blog by clicking HERE.
