Looking out the Window

After seeing Jennifer McGuire's display frame cards, I knew I'd try one. 

My starting point was that I knew I wanted a window looking out onto a garden as the the display frame on the inside. 

My workspace was such a mess that my daughter challenged me to clean up a huge pile of papers/partly finished cards/bits and pieces left over - I had 2 days to to it.  It was while I was sorting through it that I found 2 pots with some flowers (left over from this card made in October last year). Thought they would look lovely on the windowsill. 

You can open the windows ... and get a lovely view of the trees, bushes and birds.

I took this photo with the photo lying flat in order to get the light to shine through the window to the world outside.

Here's a side shot so you can the see the dimension. I stuck some of the leaves to the back panel. I glued 2 narrow vertical panels on each edge midway from the window to the back panel. Then I glued a strip of clear plastic across from one panel to the other. This helped give some stability to the branches so they could hold the birds.

Then when it was all finished, I made the front to match

Here it is in action ...
