Wonderful Windows

Marisa Alvarez, fellow Amuse Studio Creative Consultant created this awesome card.  There are so many things about it that I love about it.  First I love the color combination, the watercolor brushed background, the dimensional window box and the basket of flowers hanging from the brad.

Mr + Mrs

First of all I want to thank Chelsea Comer, fellow Amuse Studio Consultant  for this awesome idea using the Amuse Studio Candy Package Dies.  It has to be the cutest packaging ever!  The Candy Wrappers Die Set work perfectly with the  Hershey Nuggets.  I stamped Mr. + Mrs. on them from the You + Me stamp set and added a tiny heart.  
I used the Candy Package Two TAD0136 Die along with the Large Scallop Die TAD0091, Mini Bow Die TAD0109 and Mini Banner Die TAD0100 Sets.  

I had this card in my stash and the stamps & embossing plate I used are retired Amuse Studio products.  (Happily Ever After)  Here is the original post from a few years ago.
