Mountain Dad

Can you imagine seeing this through your window as you sip your morning beverage? Nature provides the best scenic views. All we have to do is sit and enjoy them. 

   Itty Bitty Greetings

   Very Vanilla A-2, 4-1/4 x 3-1/2
   Whisper White 4-1/4 x 3-1/2 (trim to window)
   Marina Mist 5-1/4 x 4
   Early Espresso 5 x 3-3/4

   Early Espresso
   Marina Mist
   Mossy Meadow
   Pear Pizzazz

   Die Cutting
   Dry Embossing

   Window Die
   Woodgrain Embossing Folder

First, I die cut my window frame from the Very Vanilla 4-1/4 x 3-1/2 piece. 

I placed it on top of the Whisper White panel, and made light pencil marks around the window frame corners. This lets me know what will show through my window.

I then sponged the sky with Marina Mist. 

Stamped the mountains and the cabin with Early Espresso, the trees with Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz, and if needed, the ground cover with Pear Pizzazz. 

The mountains were stamped several times without re-inking the stamp. This results in different shades of Early Espresso which also adds dimension to the view.

I then stamped the sentiment to the bottom of the window frame using Early Espresso.

I erased the pencil marks on the Whisper White piece and lined it up behind my window. More slight pencil marks on anything showing past the window frame.

I trimmed the Whisper White panel to make sure none shows past the window frame. I adhered the panel to the frame.

Next, I dry embossed the Early Espresso panel using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder. I adhered it to the Marina Mist Panel.

I adhered the Marina Mist to the Very Vanilla card base.

Lastly, I adhered the window frame to the center of the card. I used my favorite adhesive. If you want more dimension then use dimensionals on the panel.

  1. Oh I wouldn't mind this at all - it reminds me of your blog! But I confess, I'd miss the beach too much! I love the softness - I have a similar die and I added rain and a cat looking out the window - this is a great inspiration piece!
