Daisy Window Card

So here is a thank you card I made for a swap a few months ago.  I lifted the idea from the book "New Concepts in Paper Quilling" by Marie Browning.  The only difference is that hers was blue instead of pink and had a picture of a child instead of a stamp.  Other than that, it's exactly the same.

The card itself is a standard A2 size - 4.25" x 5.5".  The base had a hand cut (read that as pain in the butt!!) 2.5" window and the inner piece has a 1.5" window.  The stamp is from the Stampin' Up set "Figures of Speech".  I stamped it on a transparency sheet with black Staz-On ink and "colored" it in on the back side with Stickles glitter glue.  The daisies are a small punch with 3mm rhinestones in the middle.

This card was a pain in the rear to make due to having to cut out the window openings with a craft knife.  My dear friend Angie has made life simpler for me and has created a .cut file for this card in the Cricut Design Studio.  You can check it out HERE.  Thanks Angie!!
