Dawn McVey showed a great technique for this week's Make It Monday Challenge over at Papertrey Ink. Putting a pattern behind a die cut window is a great way to add texture and interest to your creations and there are so many options for this technique.
I decided to use the Circles Die Cover Plate for the pattern behind my window. The tone on tone white keeps it clean looking so it won't compete with my main focal point. I love the retro feel of this die and decided to go full retro for the rest of the card. I kept the colors light though, no orange and avocado green LOL!
For the card window, I used one of the Tipped Tops dies to cut an opening into a white card panel. I adhered this over the main card with foam tape. To create the teal frame, I nested two of the dies from the Tipped Tops set together and ran them through my Sizzix machine. I then used some liquid glue to adhere it over the window. Flowers and Leaves from Doodle-ie Doo and Ruby Reprise and a sentiment from Mod Squad finished off the card.
