Saw some beautimous ranunculus blossoms online (just google, stunning images will pop up!)  They are just as pretty as peonies and roses, IMHO.  I don't know if they have a pretty scent or not–I've never seen one IRL.  I just admire the pics.  LOL!

The base card is oatmeal (a lighter kraft type card stock), and I made it 4 bar size.  Hadn't done a window card in a while, and after I'd made a pile of these paper blossoms–no, they're not as "full" as a true ranunculus, but I couldn't get carried away as the card needed to be mailed– it occurred to me that they complimented each other nicely.  I also wanted to put some lovely green foam alpha stickers by American Crafts I'd picked up.  I dunno why I love their foam alpha stickers so much, but, I keep buying (and hording) them.  LOL!

The "You are in my thoughts" stamp is one I use pretty frequently–it just suits so many different occasions!  I just omitted the "you" and used my stamp positioner to position the rest of the sentiment into place; you cannot see it until you open the card, as I placed it deliberately beneath the lower edge of the window.
I should make a stack of these, as I really felt it turned out well!

  1. I just crumpled the flowers in my hand and then flattened them out and they naturally did that. :)

  2. How did you get the edges of the flowers to stick up like that? Love it!

  3. This is why you are who you are – HRR Julie. THANKS for sharing this beautiful card!

  4. Love it!

  5. Your flowers are soooo pretty, Julie!! I love your window with your Alpha stickers showing through as well!! *Need some of that new sheer dotted ribbon.*

  6. What a fun look! I love windows and your ranunculus is great! I buy ranunculus at the flower store sometimes, they are delicate, pretty and last when cut. They are sometimes called the poor man’s rose.

  7. This is beautiful, Julie! I love me some Thickers, also! I just found out that the new store I just added runs a special on then every Thursday- I’m in such trouble!
