Good Tuesday morning. I have a clean and simple see thru window project to share with you today. I made a few of these open Christmas window cards this past holiday season and arranged them with holly, pine and poinsettias loaded with sugary glitter. I thought it would be pretty to make a spring design with a simple floral spray with vines and daisies. You can click on my Window Card catagory to see all of my more recent window projects.
My daises today are made using the Impression Obsession Spiral Daisy and Spiral Flowers. I cut the flowers and sponged on a little yellow ink around the inner petals. I turned the flowers over on my molding pad and used a tiny stylus to push in and turn the tips of each petal back. I formed the flowers by rolling around tweezers and gluing the base in place. I punched out several 1/8” circles and formed them with my tiny tipped stylus to create the seed pods. I filled in the center opening of the rolled flower by attaching a 1/4” circle with a glue dot. I applied glossy accents over top of it and placed the seed pods by picking them up with my paper piercer point.
I cut three pieces of the leafy branch 2 , lightly formed with my large stylus and arranged them around the window to create the vines. I attached the flowers and then added sprigs of the branch punch to soften the floral spray. Here are a couple closer views.
Now here is my dilemma and I could surely use your help. I made this for a friend who is retiring and my sentiment will go on the back of the card. I struggled with leaving the inside of the card yellow or inserting white or possibly a soft designer paper. What do you think would look best?
