Sweet Daffodil Daydream Window Card

As I started to write today's post about a daffodil card, I realized I have blooming daffodils just outside my front door. So out I went to snap a couple pics to share with you.

These daffodils come back every year and they are always a wonderful sign that spring is on its way. It's a small grouping, but when they are all blooming, they are so cheerful to see.

Decided to try a close-up. Look how perfect this one is!

So now, are we in the mood for this darling daffodil card?

The sweet Daffodil Daydream Window Card will be one my class attendees have the choice to make at my Stamp & Chat Classes this weekend. Using a die-cut to create a window that is layered above the stamped image is a fun way to highlight your card's focal point of this lovely daffodil.

The Daffodil Daydream stamp set colors so nicely when you use Stampin' Blends alcohol pens. There are a few days left (Feb. 28 to be exact) to select the Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper as one of your Sale-a-Bration rewards when you place a $50 order before shipping and tax. That's a value of $11.50 worth of 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper. That's almost a 25% bonus for free!

This window technique requires a lot of dimensionals to give the Designer Series Paper even support on the front of the card. But it is worth doing this way.

The piece I die-cut out works nicely inside the card don't you think? (I try not to waste anything!)
