Global Design Project

I have 2 cards for Global Design Project sketch.

They are a bit of a stretch on the 4 square design. Mine are more 4 rectangle.
I have been admiring the cards created in SU Christmas book with the window die. That is on my list but not purchased yet so I kind of created the look. I sponged soft sky on a piece of paper, stamped it with small gold stars from the SU Holiday Home set. Then I glued it to a larger piece of white cardstock and added 4 small strips of white to make it look like a window frame. I just trimmed the ends of another piece of white for the window sill. The cat is from a Newton's Nook stamp. I just cut out the cat and perched him on the frame. Dream is a die from Little Yellow Bicycle (found at Hobby Lobby). That is all glued to a green polka dot from my stash and an SU Whisper White card base.
The second card:
I am recycling the bird pictures from a card I received last year. This has a SU Mossy Meadow background with a white mat embossed with the wood grain folder. To make the 4th rectangle, I used a scrap of white stamped with a portion of pine branch from a Hero Arts stamp. I added some red dots in the pine branches. The Happy Holidays is from The Angel Company (now out of business). All tied up with a bit of raffia.


  1. Donna, great recycling!
    Great cards!

  2. Lovely to see a recycled card and wonderful that you made it fit in with the sketch. Your window card is super cute! Thanks for playing at Global Design Project.

  3. I love the idea of creating your own window to imitate the window framelit Donna. And the cute little cat is so sweet! Thanks for joining in the Global Design Project this week!

  4. Great cards! I need to look through last year's cards and see what I can do with them. I usually try to make tags out of them, but now I'm thinking I should try recycling them into new cards, too.

  5. Donna - the rectangles work perfectly on both of these cards. I love how you've created a "dream" card with a look that's been so Christmas-themed lately. So clever! Thank you for playing along with this week's sketch challenge for the Global Design Project!
