one more for Summer Card Camp - week 1: Window card

I managed to get one more card done for Week 1 of Summer Card Camp! I was eager to try a window card, after Jennifer did a technique video about it. I've been wanting to try it, and have a big stack of acetate sheets that I've saved from my PTI stamp sets! It took me a couple of attempts to get a result that I was happy with. The first time, I used one of the Fillable Frames dies, which made a great little window. But then, I tried to hand-cut a frame around the cut-out, and it was NOT working out! So I started over, and used a couple of nesties this time.


The orange and blue patterned papers are Echo Park, and the purple is PTI. I also used Think Big Favorites #2 for the large sentiment, and the "You're the best!" is from Flower Fusion #5.



I can't wait to see what's in store for week 2 of Card Camp! Thanks for looking!

LOVE the card, Deb!! I like the idea of a window card too. I'll have to try this on my next card. I've made window cards before but never with the little frame thing like you have. Too cute!! (Btw, thank you for providing the link to the products!)

This is adorable! I tried that window card a few times and finally gave up..lol. I really like the idea of using the Nesties.
