Through the Cabin Window

Although we don’t own a cabin of our own yet (we hope to build one for our retirement some day) we have stayed in several for our family vacations.  I knew when I saw this neat Row Boat & Dock stamp from Serendipity Stamps that I wanted to create a window card.  My hubby loves to fish so this would make a great Father’s Day or Birthday card for him. 
The very sweet Cecelia Smith (Creating in Carolina) shared her window SVG with me, so I used my SCAL program to mirror the image and overlap them on the end to make a folding card!  The vanilla piece has a sheet of acetate taped to the back.  And then I made a fun little pleated curtain, sewing it along the top and added some tiny buttons.  Just like the cabin window where we stayed. 
I colored my scene with Copics and created a sunset sky.  Added some white gel pen in the water for ripples, and the sentiment is also from Serendipity Stamps.
For the front I wanted to fill the lower space so I made a sailor’s knot with green and kraft twine.  Whaddaya think??
