Window Dressing

I first saw versions of this card on Pinterest (like this and this) and mentally tucked the idea away.  Recently the idea resurfaced in the form of a window!   Like many others, I'm in love with the new Poppystamps / Memory Box window dies.  Turns out the windows also make great dressers:)  And it is the perfect size to match PTI's Gracious Vases stamps! (I used the small Madison window BTW) 

The blooms of the orchid are colored a bit with copics and fussy cut.  The images are stamped in A Muse Titian which is a rustic brown color.    
Converting the window to a dresser is pretty straightforward (all straight cuts).  I used a bit of the Titian ink and Antique Linen ink to bring out the detailing from the die cuts.  Finished up with a few pearl "handles" and that was it!  Hope my coworker likes it:)  
Thanks for visiting!

  6. I swear, one day you'll make a card I don't like. It's gotta happen eventually. Once again you've blown my socks off! That vase is perfect (as are those orchids...drool) and the dresser idea? So utterly brilliant, JJ!

  7. Such a clever idea using the window as a dresser! I just got the large die but may have to get the small one as well! I also love how you popped the flowers!

  11. How do you think of these things. What kind of special lenses are in your glasses? This is ever so clever, and I just love it. Also, I love the Gracious Vases, and never seem to get it inked up enough. What a perfect use for that set. I guess I am going to join the crowds who are stalking the web for that window die.

  13. I love this idea. However.. the window die has windows! How did you cover up the windows with the drawers. It doesn't seem to work for me.
