Spellbinders "Windows of Memories" Die Set

Hello friends! I am so excited about the release of my first collection as a Licensed Designer for Spellbinders called Special Occasions. Today I have a vintage card to share with you created with one of my die sets in this collection called Windows of Memories. This die set has so many different options, you can use your favorite pictures for a photo collage card or layout, you can also use Christmas designer papers for a Christmas card, the possibilities are endless. I think this card is perfect for a wedding, anniversary or Valentine’s Day.


1. Trim a piece of kraft cardstock to 6” x 12” with paper trimmer. Fold in half to form a 6” x 6” card base.
2. Trim pattern paper to 5 7/8” x 5 7/8” and adhere to card base.
3. Die cut frame and inserts with Windows of Memories Die Set from double sided pattern paper. You can use the die to cut specific areas of the pattern paper. Adhere frame to the card base first and then the inserts. 

4. Die cut multiple flowers and leaves using the dies included in the  Windows of Memories Die Set from white cardstock. Color flowers with distress inks using the Tool ‘n One foam refills. Shape petals with Tool ‘n One Stylus Tips and then glue together to form flowers. You can also use a brad to layer the leaves and flower petals together.

5. Glue flowers and leaves to top and bottom of the card as pictured below. Make 2 bows using white silk ribbon and adhere under flowers.

Here is another version of the same card using a different pattern paper. The flower petals and leaves in this card were layered together using brads. This card is featured on the packaging of the Windows of Memories Die Set.
