Hi there! It’s Bobbi Lemanski here. Happy Easter to all of you who celebrate the day. Easter celebrations may be different for many people this year due to COVID-19. With so many people isolated in homes and hospitals for preventive reasons, the window may be the only way to see friends and family members this Easter. Perhaps the Easter Bunny will be making an appearance at the window, too. 😉

On the outside of my card today, you see a lovely exterior window scene full of Spring happiness – a perfect setting. On the inside, you see the reality of life behind the window for many isolated. The idea is to let others know that you understand what life may feel like right now, but you still fully “see” them. You are thinking about them and sending your hugs and love, even if you can’t be with them.

Window Card

To create this 5″ X 7″ window card, I used the following Honey Bee Stamps products:

Cottage Window die set

Bill the Bear stamp and die sets

Busy Bees stamp and die sets.

Kisses Buzzword stamp set

The Bee’s Knees patter paper pad

To make the exterior window, I die cut the window frame, shutters and the flower box from the Cottage Window die set. I colored the shutters and box with a varied set of E Copic colors to create a faux woodgrain look. I cut out a rectangle slightly smaller than the window size from the middle of the card front of a 5″ X 7″ warm gray card base and glued the window in place and added the shutters and flower box.

Daisies and a sweet bee were stamped and die cut for the flower box from the Busy Bees stamp and die sets. A little bunny (from the Snow Buddies stamp and die sets) was tucked inside the flower box daisies, too.

Inside the card, the window scene has been stripped of the flower box and shutters to put more emphasis on the bear inside the window.

For the inside of the card, I die cut another white window frame, added the curtains (made from paper from the The Bee’s Knees paper pad) and a clear acrylic sheet for the “glass” window pane. The Bill the Bear image as well as yellow dotted wallpaper from (The Bee’s Knees pattern paper pad) was placed and adhered to the back of the interior window for an interior home scene. The entire window scene was positioned right under the card’s front window opening to match up perfectly when layered. Inside the card, you see the window without the flower box, shutters, bee and flowers, putting more emphasis on the bear inside the window.

Inside the card, the sentiment from the Kisses Buzzword stamp set was stamped and cut into strips and adhered to the inside as well as a little red heart from the Busy Bees stamp set.

When the card is in its closed position, you see this lovely and cheery scene of someone gazing out the window looking at the flowers and the bee, but when you open the card, you really only see this isolated bear inside. Unfortunately, it’s a scene many are facing today. A “window visit” to a family member or friend this Easter may make all the difference in someone’s day.

      Thank you, Barbara! Bill the Bear is one of my faves. It reminds me of visiting with my FIL through the window this Spring. I can’t wait till we can get back to in-home visits again! Thanks for commenting! Bobbi

    Such a sweet way to share how you feel being cooped up inside and wishing to reach out to a loved one.

    So relevant as in our area you are to place a teddy bear in your front windows so that families taking walks can go on a “bear hunt”. It’s been a very successful fun thing in our suburb. I love your stamps….have a real thing for bees!!! This is such a cute card especially for us now.
