Playing with some window cards

Hi all!  This is Melody from A Splash Here and There blog.  Thanks once again Pam for allowing me to show my projects with your wonderful readers.  These cards were designed using the Silhouette Studio and cut with the Cameo.

I was perusing my collection of cards and card bases purchased through the Silhouette Store and wanted to play with some I've always wanted to but haven't.  The two cards above started out as card base images called "2 abstract cards" by Daniela Angelova (Design ID #38691) and were sized at 5.5 square.  I cut 2 layers of background mats for each, embossing the top mat layer with Hearts Block (the brown card) and Swiss Dots (the red card) CB folders.  Then I imported digi stamps by Scrapper's Delights that were already pre-colored (big time saver for me!). I sized the images to fit in smaller rectangles then wrote the sentiments using the Choppin Script font already in my library. 

I also created an inside mat for the sentiments, personalized, again using the Choppin Script, flood-filled in my choice of color. I used the internal offset feature of the Silhouette Studio to create the faux stitching in coordinating colors. 

For the left side of the inside mats, I turned a couple of images into sketched images.  The heart border is by Alaa' K (Design ID #15744) and the set of balloons  is by Snapdragon Snippets (Design ID #24866).  Below are closeups of the sketched images.

I finished up the cards with ribbons from my stash, Card Candies, and some irock white gems.  Thanks for stopping by today!
