Window Birthday Card

I saw a cute window card on Kristina Werner's blog and thought I'd try my own version.

Most of the time I would just eyeball where I wanted to punch my circles, but Kristina had a video on her blog of how she gets hers evenly spaced. I followed her directions and punched a 1 1/2" circle 3 times from scrap paper and placed the circles (with just a small piece of mono adhesive on the back) on my strip of Brilliant Blue cardstock. When I was happy with the placement, I punched them out again from the cardstock. I then drew a light pencil line around the circles onto my Whisper White cardstock so I'd know where to stamp.

After stamping the present from Big Bold Birthday, I erased my pencil marks and added dimensionals to the back of the Brilliant Blue cardstock to adhere it. I added a few strips of Jersey Shore DSP and stamped Happy Birthday at the top. I decided to change my ribbon placement from Kristina's and threaded it through the left circle window.

Recipe:
Stamps: Big Bold Birthday
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, Whisper White
DSP: Jersey Shore
Ink: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Pumpkin Pie Striped Ribbon
Tools: 1 1/2" Circle Punch
