Goodbye Just Believe

This was one of the cards my friends made at our stamping class a few days ago.  It is from the soon-to-be retired  Just Believe stamp set.  I have seen similar cards using this kind of a window with other stamp sets, and I love it with this silhouette image.
The card uses Soft Sky card stock, an old In Color, which will be returning as one of the new colors in the Subtles collection in the new catalog.
The background was embossed with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions embossing folder.  A piece of Soft Sky ribbon was wrapped around the corner.
Labels Framelits were used to cut out the windows.  Strips of 1/8" wide card stock were added on top to make the window frames after assembling the rest of the card.  The white piece was colored with ink and a sponge to make a background, and a mask was used to sponge the sun in  place.
I heat embossed the flower image using VersaMark ink and black Embossing Powder.
This is such a fun technique for a card.  Hope you'll give it a try and tell me what you think!

This is beautiful! While I've seen lots of 'window' designs I really like the way you 'offset' yours and the panes are not all equal.

This is amazing!! Love how you did the window look. I'm so glad soft sky is coming back. I like that color.
