I matted the window onto a larger Grass Green mat and then sponged yellow and orange inks directly onto the middle of my white folded card base to create a little sunset behind it. I added some large white flowers with button centers to give the card some dimension and added some of my favorite flourish punches to weave in and out through the opening like vines climbing a wall.
This next card was inspired by my own wedding which took place in late September, our 11th anniversary is next week. Our colors were not quite this earthy (we did have fall flowers in our decor and my bouquet, though) but this card is for my husband so I want to man it up a bit! I used the cut out from the frame above then matted it onto a Pumpkin Spice layer I'd stamped tone on tone, lining up the images, then doing the same things on the Chocolate Brown layer, here you can see the thin border all the way around. Card base is Kraft. I added some neutral buttons and twine to the centers to give it some natural textures. I also decorated my envelope by stamping the frame again with Antique Linen.
