Instructions: My card is 7 X 7". I made the card base using the watercolor paper because of the size and for stability. Choose a striped designer paper and cut it on the 6 7/8" x 6 7/8".
Decide on which size window box you want to use and cover it with the paper collection. Die cut the front using the 2A die for opening. Cut one of the card fronts to fit on the back panel on the inside and glue it down. Glue the box to the front of the card leaving the right side unglued so you can slip in the tags later.
Next using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink, I stamped the sunflowers, leaves and bear and bear paw onto watercolor paper. Using various Distress Inks listed, I water colored all the elements. Die cut using coordinating dies. Add the Prills to the flower centers and set aside to dry. I used Glossy Accents to cover the ladybug and set it aside to dry.
Once everything is dry, decide on the placement and glue them down. Next using the luggage and tags die, die cut the tags from the paper pad. Die cut blue paper from paper pad using the Snow Kissed flakes and Tag die, and glue them together. Add the ribbon and slide them into the side of the box.
Next find a sentiment and back it with the navy blue paper and using the dimensional tape, adhere it to the top of the card.
