I told you I liked this Hero Arts Window on the Garden!

I wanted to see how an all white card would come out.  Because of the way I cut this die (rectangular), I thought it needed something below the garden window and also something across.  I had small pieces of the thin dotted paper and decided to strengthen it with a heavy black cardstock beneath.  I like the way it turned out.  While I was cutting this die, I cut quite a few so I could try out different techniques. There will be at least one more card this month to show you.  It's on its way in the mail.

1. I die-cut the stitched rectangles about 10 times on glossy paper for sponging with distress or distress oxide inks.
2. I die cut the stitched rectangles about 10 times on regular card stock (my top panels)
3. I then positioned the Hero Arts Window on the Garden die on the regular card stock die cuts (the ones I cut in #2) and cut the window 10 times.
4. I put the regular die-cut card stock on top of the glossy die-cuts so they are ready to use.
5. I now have enough to make these quite quickly for various occasions from sympathy to celebration.
