A6 Arch Window Card

This window card is from Creative Cuts and More. They have a bunch of window cards to choose from, and I wanted to try one with this beautiful owl stamp from Creative Play Stamps. When you go to the CC&M website, you first choose what you'd like them to cut, like this card. Then there is a drop down box with the dozens of paper choices available. This happens to be Bazzill Smoothies in Almond Cream. I added a quarter sheet of acetate to my card, which you could probably order from CC&M as well, they have a nicer weight than what this is, mine's pretty flimsy, but it works for this card. CC&M is a fairly new company and they are adding new products all the time. I was looking around their site last night and noticed that they have Doodlebug adhesive gems, and sugar glitter-so pretty!! I'm going to get some of both! The sentiment on this card is from A Chemistry With Paper's HUGE set, All Year Bag Toppers. The stamp is one line. The way I made it two lines is by inking it with my Cat's Eye. I first inked "Feel Better" and omitted "Soon." Then I stamped, cleaned the stamp and did the opposite. I could also have cut my stamps apart, since they are clear and unmounted, but it's a brand new set, and I just didn't want to cut it up, so I did it this way. It only took an extra minute to get exactly what I wanted.

For someone like me, who has NO die-cutting thingiemabobbers, being able to design some cuts and order them is pretty cool. The card has a woodsy/cabin feeling -- I, for one, would feel really comforted if I looked out my window and saw that owl, like a mythical knight!
