Hinged Window Card

This was a card we made in one of the classes on my group. It opens twice the hinged window on the front of the card as well as the traditional opening of the card. You can put an extra greeting there which is nice.

I used scraps of paper again - yep I am really trying to use them up! the green was parts of a 12x12 that was cut for another project somewhere along the way. The flower is stamped on watercolor paper BUT I colored directly onto the stamp with my Copic markers and then spritzed with some alcohol and stamped it down onto the paper. I liked the effect it had. The edges of the paper were scraped along the edge of one of the Copics too. Matted the flower on the black paper and then adhered it to the hinged part of the card.

This is the end result. I was really pleased with the card.
