Beauty Abounds, Dandelion Wishes, 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog, Get Well Card

Tonight I will be participating in a card swap and here is my card.  The technique is called "The Window Card".  It's very easy to do too!  I made one earlier last month.  You can see it here.  There you will also find the instructions for it.  I'm just going to post here the materials I used to make this one.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Crushed Curry.  The inside is an 8" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.

I had used the "Stitched Rectangles" dies to make the openings on the card.  

For the front I used a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Share What You Love" 12' x 12" paper pack.  
I had followed the instructions I had written up and did find that I should have cut the DSP 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" instead of 5" x 3-7/8".  There was too much space between the top and bottom of the card.  The DSP needed to be a little longer.  

The words I used are from the "Dandelion Wishes" set. I stamped them using black Memento ink.  I did shut the card and traced around the opening so I could see where I needed to stamp.  I drew lightly and erased using a kneadable eraser (I highly recommend them, they remove only the graphite and don't ruin the paper).  I used the Stamparatus to do all of my stamping. I was making 10 cards so it was just easier to set it up to mass produce like that. If you think 10 cards is mass producing!  LOL

I used Mango Melody to stamp the  bubble images from the "Beauty Abounds" set.  

I die cut a butterfly from the "Butterfly Beauty" thinlits dies.  It's a big die and I just used one of the butterflies and trimmed the wing a bit.  The butterfly was cut from Mint Macaron card stock.   I glued it in place on the thicker part of the bottom wings.  

This was a pretty simple card to make and I would think that if I were making just one card it wouldn't take very long.  What I didn't like doing, when making this many was the die cutting of the rectangles.  But I survived it!! LOL

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
