A few weeks ago I shared a Window Technique Card using different dies to create the window and images (click here for post).

For today’s project I want to show you how you can make a Designer Paper Window card using punches.

I love how the Sprig Punch and Vases Builder Punch create a Tulip Garden!  It’s a perfect card for any spring occasion!

 

You can change the designer paper to create another fun look…
