Tuscany Dreams (Memory Box Madison Arched Window, Flower Box, Honeyblossom Sprig, Primula Blooms)
I think the Madison Arched Window die by Memory Box lends itself to some of the prettiest design. The Memory Box Flower Box die adds a nice feature underneath the window. I wanted to create a window that looked like it could be a classic Tuscany style.
I first centered the window on tan cardstock and then die cut it. Next I used the Sizzix Bricked embossing folder on the tan cardstock to give it that old world feel. I added mounting tape to the back of the cardstock so the window will have a recessed appearance.
In dark cardstock I die cut the Small Madison Arched Window and Grand Flower Box. I found some dark patterned paper and attached a piece behind the window. Attach the window underneath the tan embossed piece.
Die cut the Memory Box Honeyblossom Sprig in green cardstock and create yellow and white flowers from the Memory Box Primula Blooms. Add the sprig along the outside of window frame add the flowers and finish centers with Ranger Ink Stickles Xmas red. Glue the Grand Flower Bow at bottom of window on the embossed tan cardstock.
