Farm Window by Dana Warren

Hello AI fans!!

Dana here with a fall card for you! School is just around the corner and it means fall is too! I'm starting to think about fall and Halloween cards along with making Christmas cards!

I started by stamping the Farm Window on a white card stock panel. I used Spectrum Noir markers to color the image, using fall colors. I wanted to use the Windows die, but couldn;t find it. It's time for a clean up of my craft desk!!

Instead i pulled out a ruler i have, it has small holes every 1/4 inches i think. With a sharp needle i pierced every other hole. Next i found some natural twine that i wanted to thread through the holes.

I wanted a bow at one of the corners, so i made sure my twine was very long and i started at one corner, leaving a long tail that would be part of the bow. Then i threaded the rest of it around the card panel so i could then tie a bow.

Last i added some foam tape to the back of the panel and adhered it to a dark orange card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Stamping!
