Window cards

Here are 2 cards made by cutting out a shape in the front of the card, then using an embossing folder to give it texture.

Supplies: HeroArts CG123 Flower Wallpaper, flowers stamped on purple and yellow dotted papers, CL304 A Million Thanks (leaves stamped on bright green BoBunny dotted paper), sentiment from Northwoods Rubber Stamps, Blossom notecard, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Victoria embossing folder, purple and gold pearls


And on this one, I turned the lime notecard inside out and used a scalloped circle nestie to cut my window and the green frame around it.
Supplies: CL123 Flower Wallpaper (large flowers), K5185 Wallpaper Flowers (small flowers), CL304 A Million Thanks (leaves), E4147 Sunshine and Flowers (sentiment), Lime notecard, various pastel BoBunny and Bazill dotted papers

I'm entering these into Virginia's Winter Blah's contest, since they are hinting at the Spring season to come.
