I enjoy the results of a recessed window card and decided to try it again with a Fall theme. It takes me a long time to complete one of these cards, but I think the results are worth it!
A tutorial and video can be found at SplitCoastStampers for the recessed window card. I followed the cutting directions given in the video. The card was cut 5 1/4 X 10 3/4, scored at 5 1/4 and again at 5 1/2. The little created spine will help the card lay flat.
After a little blogging, I decided to incorporate several Cricut cuts and enter the card in several challenges. First I needed a barn. The challenge is to use the barn from the Cricut Old West cartridge, but I do not have that cartridge. I located this cute barn on Everyday Paper Dolls and cut it out to go inside the created window. Next I needed pumpkins and leaves for a couple more challenges. It was a lot of chirping going on as the Cricut Expression cut pumpkins and leaves of different sizes and papers. Why not add a tree and maybe throw in a wheelbarrow? The card began to take shape!!
Trying to think of a good title or sentiment, I glanced through a recently purchased Cricut Pooh Font Set cartridge. I found this on clearance for $15.00. Love those good buys!! One of the creative features on this cartridge is Wood and I thought this font would look good with my old barn/country theme.
