Sweet Birdie in My Window

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 77

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the wonderful Dani Dziama’s blog.  As always, we have some amazeballs inspiration to share today 🙂

You know how I usually say that my card is easy peasy???  Well not today!  This was a lot of steps but the results were so worth it!  I got the window shade idea from Joanne James at http://www.thecraftyowl.co.uk and I have wanted to try it since I saw her cute card 🙂  I used DSP for my Roman shade instead of ribbon and it worked perfectly.

The window is die cut from Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  The Roman shade is a piece of Moroccan Designer Series Paper cut wide enough to cover the window and and then rolled back twice to make the shade.  A piece of window sheet is cut the size of the window and added before the shade.  Foam adhesive strips along the backside are attached to a piece of Whisper White cut just barely smaller than the window.  Oh my how I love the foam adhesive strips!

The card front is Delightful Dijon embossed with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It is also lightly stamped (stamped off) with the net image from Best Birds in Delightful Dijon. The cute flowers from Best Birds are stamped in Archival Black and colored with markers (Flirty Flamingo, Emerald Envy and Daffodil Delight).  The colored flowers are die cut with Birds & Blooms.  The sweet little birdie is die cut with the same dies in Dapper Denim.  Isn’t he the cutest thing evah???  I love him to pieces 🙂

The sentiment is from Thoughtful Banners and is stamped in Dapper Denim.  A couple of pearls for the flowers and some gold thread add just the right finishing touches.
