Window Challenge!

This was a fun card to create, but it was a bit of a challenge! The challenge was the Ways to Use It challenge (WT154) from Splitcoaststampers. I have not made a card that had a window in it before. I wanted to make a masculine birthday card (although it really can be for anyone), but it was hard to find an image to go along with my theme and the challenge. I finally decided on the cake from the Sale-A-Bration set, Birthday Whimsy. But I really did not have a way to make a decent looking window on the front of the card that was the size I needed. Then I remembered that I could use my round tab punch to create circle. This would be perfect!!!

All products are from Stampin' Up! I used the Birthday Whimsy and stamped in chocolate chip classic ink. I used the Flowers for You dsp for the top half. I used chocolate chip, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, and certainly celery cs. I also used silver brads. I used my paper piercing tool along with the mat pack along the edges of the bottom half. Then I colored in the cake with mellow moss and barely banana.

I think it turned out pretty good! Thanks for looking and enjoy!

Cool card. I also have wanted to do a peek a boo style card but just never seemed to fine the right layout. Yours is perfect!
