Kinkade Arch Window
After making all kinds of cute and pretty things, it was time for me to go in the opposite direction with a masculine card. This arch window card has a Thomas Kinkade scene stamped on the inside so it really does look like you are looking out a window. I used the A2 Arch Window die cut in a chocolate brown cardstock color.
I brayered some brown ink onto the stamp to get the best impression and then stamped it on some ivory cardstock. This image works beautifully with these window cards from Creative Cuts and More. Once I was sure the ink was dry, I used a sponge to add a little Old Paper distress ink to age up the image a bit.
It is fun to pull out stamps that have scenes on them and use them with these arch window cards. Do you have scenic stamps hiding in your crafting space? Pull them out and order some A2 Arch Window die cuts and create some beautiful cards in no time.
