I love that gorgeous window frame die and decided to use it as a border for my blended background! I started by blending Raspberry Jam, Pale Tomato and Soft Apricot ink onto a piece of strathmore bristol smooth cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment and branches from the kit with versamark and heat-embossed them with gold glitter embossing powder.
I die-cut the window frame die twice, once from black cardstock and once from white cardstock and trimmed off the swing. I also stamped the cute little squirrel with versafine, heat-embossed him with clear embossing powder, and die-cut him with the coordinating die. I offset the black frame and adhered it to the white frame. Then I adhered that over the blended background and added the squirrel with a little foam mounting tape. This kit is super versatile and different blended backgrounds or different sentiments can make cards for many different occasions!
