Spellbinders Arched Window

Hi Everybody,

Earlier this week I was asked the question ... "What is the long thin bar for that is in the
Arched Window   die set?"

Here is a card that I made using that die set quite some time ago and I have added some Fancy Lattice  behind the frame to make the card look more churchy

The thin bar that is with the set is there for you to divide the window up into window panes if you wish.

By placing the strip in different places you can create a window that will give a new look each time you use it.

The dies  will produce solid panels or by nesting them together you can create frames of different  sizes

A really pretty die that can create some lovely effects for you and can be for many occasions.

This one is for a wedding but it would make a lovely Christmas card with a stained glass window in the frame

The bows centre and the Guipure lace in a soft cream are both from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sparkly Pearl and Diamant√© strip is from Want2Scrap

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  14. This is really pretty, Christina. The design is so delicate and I love the flowers. I often worry about putting too much on a card and this one proves that with only three roses the window has come to life :). I'm 'resting' today as I managed to glue my thumb with the hot glue gun instead of the card yesterday lol. I'm just a disaster waiting to happen in the craft room. xx
