A girl in the window card (Paper Nest Dolls image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I hope you're enjoying 2016 so far :)

I have 3 cards to show today and this first one includes an image from Paper Nest Dolls. I coloured the little girl and the window frame then fussy cut around them so that I could add the pink "wall" background and some patterned "curtains". 

I was not really impressed with my new pressie (Aussie slang for present hehe) which was a brick wall die. The bricks in the middle didn't cut properly so I'm not sure if I need a new cutting mat or the die isn't good enough, hopefully I just need a new mat! Anyway, I decided it worked for this purpose as she is supposed to be in a house window so the bricks should be there haha!

Flourish with a Bling is selling all their products for $2 each this month, that's more than half off most products!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide.

  1. Love how you added the curtains and background to the window and the brick die looks great-try adding another piece of card over the die for extra pressure,some of mine need this

    P.S. Try adding a 'shim' of a piece of card in the area that doesn't cut properly or give a quarter turn in your machine with the card in tact before running through again :)
