Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 1

Here's a sneak peek of one of the new sets being released at Taylored Expressions on Sunday, April 5th! It's called Fresh Flowers and it's from the Whimsical Wishes line! This set is absolutely perfect for Mother's Day but also works well for thank you, birthday and just because cards too! The card I made is just to say "I Love You". I used paper and embellishments from the Mother's Day Key Ingredients. I stamped and colored the window and window box and mounted them with foam tape onto the card. I added some Baby Pink and Pale Green Flower Soft over the window box for some flowers. It adds such a neat touch when you don't have stamped flowers there!

The neat thing about this card is that you can actually open the windows to reveal a sweet surprise! Since I've made the card, I've had it sitting on my desk with the "windows" open. . .it's like a little picture frame. :)



Don't forget to stop by and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has cooked up for today! I know they'll all be amazing projects!

VERY clever to have a picture of your kiddos behind the windows. AWESOME!! Love the idea that it can sit on your desk. Hmmmm...maybe I'll make one for my mom so she can show off her granddaughters. :)
