Quirky windows

The challenge at Quirky Crafts is all about apertures in cards, or any craft project, or in the card toppers or layers like mine. Our sponsor is The Cutting Cafe (who are generously providing all three prizes and files for the team to use) and I used three file sets on my card:
Everyday Card Toppers (Cutting files)
A bunch of monsters (printable files)
Birthday fun (printable files)

I printed Word Bubble Left from Everyday Card Toppers, onto Nitwit paper by LOTV, using the pdf files because I don't have a working cutting machine set up, and I cut the panel and bubble by hand. I changed the colour of the sentiment to green, printed it and cut it out before mounting it using foam tape to give it dimension behind the cut out speech bubble. Then I added some polka dot chiffon ribbon to the panel before it was mounted onto the card also using foam tape. I coloured my monster with Promarkers and fussy cut it, then adhered it to the panel.
Hop on over to Quirky Crafts to see more great examples and play along with us.
