Southern Serenade, Beautiful Bouquet, Anniversary Card, Double Fold Window Card Technique

 Here's a fun card I found using a Google search. I needed to make an Anniversary card and as I was looking for something fun using the new "Southern Serenade" set, I found this fun "Double Fold Window Card".  What a fun and easy technique.  It did take a little time but it was easy to do. You can see the original card here.  

The base is a folded half-sheet of Sahara Sand card stock. The inside piece (seen in photo 2) is an 8-1/4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White that was folded in half.  

I cut a piece of Basic Black 5-3/8" x 4-1/8" and a piece of Whisper White cut 5-1/4" x 4".  I centered the oval die on the Basic Black piece.  I die cut it and then I taped it to the Sahara Sand piece. I inserted the die cut in the Basic Black opening and die cut the Sahara Sand piece.  I lined up the Whisper White piece over the Basic Black piece and then lined up the largest oval die. I taped it in place with small post it notes. I die cut that piece and then taped it in place.  
Next I set the folded Whisper White piece inside and closed the front. I traced the oval lightly with a pencil.  This allowed me to know where I needed to stamp.  

I stamped the lace using Sahara Sand ink. I wished I would have stamped off once, I think the lace is a little too dark.  Then I stamped the 

flower piece. I colored in the flowers with Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Cajun Craze markers. I taped this Whisper White piece to the inside of the card, lining up the edges.

I stamped the small flower on the front and colored it in.

The words are from the "Beautiful Bouquet" set. I stamped them using black Memento ink. I die cut the with a small oval die. I die cut an oval scallop of Sahara Sand to layer behind the words. I set them in place with Dimensionals. Be careful not to add a Dimentional to the bottom left or it may stick to the inside of the card.

See, I told you it wasn't hard to make, just a little time consuming.  But SO worth it.  This would make a great wedding card, birthday card, get well card, thinking of you card, Mother's Day card, or a thank you card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today,
