Make It Monday #278 - Window Chipboard Sentiments

Hello friends.  This weeks Make It Monday challenge at PTI is newcomer Stephanie Gold's first one, and she does a FABULOUS job showing how to make a fun and very cool looking window in your cards using chipboard sentiments!

I made a fun and bright card using a set I hadn't used in a looooong time: Friendly Flowers.  (I've always LOVED the leaves in this set!!)


I used the Wonderful Words: Birthday die for my sentiment, and the only thing I wished I would have done differently was to have put it up higher on the card so that the card would open easier!  I noticed (after the fact of course!) that Stephanie had placed her sentiment higher toward the top of her card, and she probably did that for the reason that it opened better that way!  Oh well, live and learn!!


I guess I was thinking along the same lines as Nancy Penir as I made a matching envelope out of some of the fabulous DSP I bought when it all was on sale!  Plus the fact that I had been feeling a little guilty about not making matching envelopes for the past few years and then one of the 10th Anniversary challenges was all about making them...time to get back to some of the good old basics!!


Make sure you check out Stephanie's great video and BEAUTIFUL card, and then play along right HERE...it really is a fun challenge this week!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!

  1. I love this in red and I love the stamp set you used Marcia! I bet your right on having the word more to the top, mine didn't work that well at the bottom either but I do like it lower. Gorgeous card and envelope!

  2. Oh, you are too smart, didn't even think of raising the word on the card! I was afraid the loops on the "H" would get stuck, hmmm, should try it on a card and place the word higher! Love your bright colors too!! I think we were both after the same thing...COLOR in our life after all the white and grays! Gorgeous card as always my friend!! Have a wonderful day!

  3. Love this fun and festive birthday card and nice to see an older stamp set being used! By the way, I put my word at the top and it's still hard to get open.
