Baroque Motifs




Good Morning everybody!!!

I like todays "Way to use it" challenge #154...it's about "Window" cards!!!

I made a similar card not to long ago with the "A Beautiful Thing" set....so this layout came in handy today!!!

For todays card I used the "Baroque Motifs" set and also the "Brocade Background" DSP.

The DSP was placed on a Old Olive CS. Then I used my square Coluzzle template and cut the window. Then I used the distressing tool in the window.

For the center piece in the window I used the flower from the "Baroque Motifs" set and stamped it in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and embossed it with the Dark Brown Embossing Powder from the retired Powder Stack.

I cut the image out and raised it with Stampin Dimensionals before I placed it on a square piece of Whisper White CS which was attached on the inside of the card.

Then I used the Mat Pack to decide where I wanted to place the Jumbo Brads. The Brads were finished off with some "Pearl Gems" from the "Pretties Kit".

For a more elegant look I used the Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon. ~TFL~
