Spring Window Card

I've discovered a set of metal dies that are just so cute! These unique and creative dies are from Cottage Cutz. The one I used for this post is the Spring Window (4 x 6") and it works well on a 5 x 6 1/2" card base. I've added the Art Impression front and back stamps of kids, who love looking in and out of windows! The highly detailed window die creates an almost 3D effect. It's easy to customize each project since each piece cuts separately.

I used Art Impressions Peter UMQ1524, Becky UMT1519 and Annie UMT1518 for the little kids peeking from the windows.



To get the front and the inside of the card each piece was cut twice using my trusty Cuttlebug.

During a visit with my friend Diane, I discovered that the pieces to the Cuttlebug Quilling Kits work well for card embellishments. I used the floral petal cutting die from the Daisy Kit for a cute valence inside the card, over the window.

Here are the steps I took using my Cuttlebug and dies to create this adorable card.
