Window cards are some of my favorites to create using my Gypsy or the CCR. I needed to make a few beach theme cards for my stash and one for a special birthday card. I enjoyed a cup of joe and some hot herbal tea while I played around on my Gypsy designing this card.
I decided to do some distressing of my elements and pop up a few things on the card to give it that extra pizazz! It’s easier to show you how to do all that than it is for me to tell you so I made a video to share how I put the card together. You can watch it HERE.
Each card is just a little different as the distressing comes out differently on each piece. I also switched up how I mounted and popped up certain elements to make them all unique. I really struggle with making the same card twice so this helps me keep it interesting.
This is one of the three stamp sets that comes with CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Collection. I used the Happy Birthday sentiment.
I added some texture under the chair and shells with a product that looks like sand. It’s hard to see it in these photos but in real life it appears like real sand. I will let it dry all day today.
