... and the perfect combination of inspiration comes into your life that just makes a project so much fun! :) That happened to me last week, when the A Muse Studio education director gave us Creative Consultants a challenge to use a recessed window on a card or project. (Check out her video project for the challenge.) In thinking about what I wanted to make for my window card, I remembered the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger that was posted this week. I'd also been wanting to try a really yummy-looking muffin recipe I'd seen, which led me to remember a post from Sue Plote of This Pink Rooster, in which she showed a cute box she made to deliver a homemade muffin to a friend. Instantaneous cartoon lightbulb above my head! :)
Here's the Tuesday Trigger photo - Don't you just need to go to Anthro now?? ;)
And here's the resulting project...
I kind of cheated and made the window all the way through the front of my card, rather than using the recessed window technique on just the front. This is definitely a favorite technique of mine.
It's hard to see in the photo, but I clear-embossed some flowers along the side of the blue piece just to add a little extra detail to an otherwise plain and rather large expanse of cardstock.
P.S. Go make that muffin recipe. Seriously. Like right now. It is so good and it's Weight Watchers! And totally usable with any kind of fruit. :)
