For the month of March, The Greeting Farm just released two new digi sets called, Miss Anya Dress Up and Fashion Sayings. Both sets celebrate the fashionista in all of us. I made a peek-through window card. From the front, you can open the closet doors and see Miss Anya in the dressing room (fully clothed, of course!) The card front shares a view of the store with all its beautiful dresses. Inside, Miss Anya has a pretty dressing room to try on all the clothes that caught her eye. I used a few elements from other digi sets to make this card, too.
This 5″ X 7″ card featuring a peek-through window in the front tempts you to open it once you get a peek of Anya behind the doors. To make this feature, I used the shutters from the Porch 2 digi set. I made them into louvered doors for the dressing room. and flanked the sides with open retail spaces for the dresses from the Miss Anya Dress Up digi set. I used my precision cutter to cut the doors open on the top, bottom and down the middle to create the door opening. It’s really easy to do after you’ve printed the scene out. Eventually, this card front panel will be attached to a card base.
When the doors are opened you see a full view of Anya inside. I printed out two more louvered doors to add to the inside of the doors for a finished look and to conceal any Copic bleeding marks, too. The wood plank floor was hand drawn. and I printed a “happy birthday” strip to add to the front. I kept everything black and white with gray shading to allow the clothes and Miss Anya to steal the show on the front.
When the card is flipped open, you see Anya in the dressing room. She’s got clothes hanging from a bar, ready to try on. There’s a mirror behind her, a rug on the floor and a wicker chair with a bold striped pattern cushion and shoes and a purse next to it. I also added a Dressing room sign made of wood to the wall. Some of these items are from other digi sets:
Rug and dressing room sign – Build a Living Room (I erased the words on the sign and added “Dressing Room.”)
Mirror – Porch (I used a window and removed the sashes.)
Wicker Chair – Porch 2
Anya, hanging clothes, shoes and purses – Miss Anya Dress Up
Phrase – Fashion Sayings
To make sure no Copic bleeding is shown, I attached the card front and card interior to a white card base with a cutout on the front to match the door opening. Both colored panels were attached to the base to finish the card.
