She'll have to get out wicked old stamps

And so the If you give a girl a lighthouse series continues!  Today I have the other four cards that had windows cut into them.  Totally CAS style- so now I have CAS and mid-century going on here.  Soooo outside my box!
The stamps are from SU and must be at least 12 years old, probably older since I was living in SC when I got them and I've been in New England for 11 years.  This set makes me think of white wrought iron lawn furniture with over sized bright floral fabric cushions.  Alas, I wax nostalgic.  They were a little too simple initially so I added the three lines of embossing on the bottom to anchor card.  The left side inside is lined with paper that matches the stamp on the envie (you can see it in the first pic).
So when I was cutting the mat/windows I thought "hey I'll cut some of the uber gorgeous flower paper at the same time and use it to frame the window".  The thought that failed to occur to me was that I was cutting the mat/window with the largest die.  That meant that the frame I was going to use was NEVER GOING TO FIT.  Ugh.  So tomorrow's post will be how I used my mistake to create another set of cards. LOL!


  1. Pretty! Sometimes I find that my mistakes lead to some of my favorite projects. :) Can't see how you fixed yours. :)

  2. These are just lovely well done Hugs Elaine

  3. More beautiful cards! I love the little added detail of the scored lines! Can't wait to see what happens next!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments!
