Find Joy

Find Joy

I've been trying to get back into some challenges that I enjoy making cards for, so here's one for the Moxie Fab World's Card Challenge Week: Make a Card with a Window.

I first trimmed a white cardstock panel to fit inside my card, made from Tide Pool layering paper from Hero Arts.  I die-cut a butterfly window from the white panel, and then ran it through a cute Darice butterfly embossing folder.  On separate white cardstock I stamped the butterflies (Hero Arts 657773 Antique Flowers and Butterflies stamps and dies), colored them with markers, used the matching dies to trim them out and then added the bigger one to the card base and the smaller ones were put onto the embossed panel, along with the sentiment banner (Hero Arts CL129 Anytime Messages).  Here's another picture to show my butterfly window:
