A beveled windowpane to frame a miniature masterpiece


These Beveled Windowpanes are one of those gorgeous accessories that I buy and then can't bring myself to use, lol. Do I really love anyone that much? Well, I'm determined to get using mine after all ... so that I'll have the perfect excuse to buy some more, heehee.

They add a real touch of luxury to any card.


Recipe
Stamp sets: Baby Blossoms, Something to Celebrate
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla
Ink: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green
DSP: Springtime Vintage
Seam Binding Ribbon: Baja Breeze
Embossing Folder: Perfect Polka Dots
Other: Beveled Windowpanes, Brads (Subtles)

The card is a 5" Square of Baja Breeze, matted with Pear Pizzazz card and then a layer of Very Vanilla card that was first run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. A panel of Springtime Vintage DSP was stamped with the sentiment using Garden Green ink. This was then matted onto Pear Pizzazz and then Baja Breeze cardstock. Using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement, the Baby Blossoms were stamped onto Very vanilla card using a combination of Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green inks. This was trimmed to the same size as the medium Windowpane and Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon was threaded through the Windowpane to hold the image in place before securing the ribbon behind the DSP matted panel. A brad was used to secure a faux bow in place before popping the panel up on the card front with dimensionals.

Here's a close up of the windowpane:


What have you got tucked away in your stash box that's too yummy to use?
