Stamped window card ..

Here's a card I made from a technique I found on Technique Tuesday's blog. 

Thanks to mynnette for the invite. x
 Its a wonderful blog with lots of techniques to keep you busy, I know this one but haven't used it for a while so thought I share with you today.

Stamped Punched Window

 Basically you cut an aperture out of a piece of card, (smaller than your base card blank) to create a window and then raise it on pads and place it over a stamped sentiment, after its been stamped up around the 'window' and run through an embossing folder.  I used a cuttlebug embossing folder (small daisies) for this card and a floral stamp around the aperture and decoupaged the flowers. as a twist I mounted my sentiment onto acetate and then raised the aperture over it. If you would like to see the technique in full detail why not pop over to Technique Tuesdays /Stamped punched window there you will find step by step instructions on how to make your own card using this technique

The butterflies are a combination of two dies one from marianne designs and the other Cheery lynn exotic butterfly dies. I added some gems to the body to add a little sparkle.

The sentiment reads
 Love is...
the caring of two hearts
the pairing of two lives
the sharing of two souls
