A Fun Afternoon with a Friend

I had such a fun afternoon with a dear craft friend (and sometimes instructor), Cheryl, last Tuesday.  We poked around a local craft store and purchased some great new toys (we REALLY NEEDED - *wink*).  One of the new toys we both got was this great new Small Madison Window die from Memory Box.  

This card was made for my beautiful niece, Emily's birthday on Tuesday.  I wanted it to look vintage and CAS and I think I achieved what I was going for.  Do you see the covered button I used for the flower center?  That's from Emily's grandmother's old button collection for an additional little treasure on the card.  

The products I used, in addition to the Memory Box die, for this card were Gina K Designs Pure Luxury 120 weight white for a base layer.  Core'dinations paper which I ran through my die machine with a CB folder and then lightly sanded to get that distressed look.  I then tore the edge and layered it against another torn paper from Basic Grey's "Little Black Dress" 6x6 pad.  The stamped images are from the GKD, StampTV Set "Vintage Chic", loved the silhouette image for this card.  The sentiment was stamped on Spellbinder Labels 22 and then cut and placed behind the window frame.  

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you're all ready for the holidays!  I'm way I'm off to get some catching up done.

I love this card, Cheri! The window die is perfect for that image! Great design! I think I'm going to NEED that die, too! Hugs, my friend!

WOW! Stunning card. I agree the window die suits the image. The embossing is great and I'm sure Emily will treasure the card with that added touch from her grandmother's collection!
