Diamond Window Survivor Card
Hello my crafty friends!
Wow October already where has summer gone! As we all know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month - GO GET THOSE MAMMOGRAMS!!! Each October I do a few survivor cards to send to breast cancer survivor people. What better day to start this year but on World Card Day! I started this a few years ago with a dear friend and classmate (graduated in 1968). Over the years I went through my classmates that had survived it and added friends and acquaintances. This makes me happy and I believe that it makes the receiver happy letting them know that just because they survived their journey isn't forgotten.
My first card this year is a Diamond Window Card (I did a Christmas one a few weeks ago but it was larger 8"X 8"). I chose to do 6" X 6" so it would fit into my acrylic boxes which works just have less area for flowers.
Here is a link for video I used to create my card just remember hers is 8" X 8" Find link here
My card is done in plain white cardstock and outer piece was embossed using a swiss dot embossing folder.
The window can be cut in any shape but I just love the diamond. She does it with hexagon. Spellbinders S5-525 Essential Diamonds Etched Dies (from the Glimmer Greetings Collection).

You only live once but if you live right once is enough!
