Happy New Border Punch

I've been wanting to make a window card, and thanks to the blogosphere I found the inspiration!I designed the card and the window in Scal so that I could get the fold I wanted; but for the pretty lace elements I pulled out my shiny new border punch and used my scraps. The text was made in InDesign and printed on gray paper. I stamped the little green birds on the brown paper, aligned clear acetate over it and stamped the cages in black. The window frame is "aged" with a gray marker. And I couldn't help but decorate the back of the card in brown with the larger version of the bird.
