Porthole card - Caardvarks

The challenge over at Caardvarks is a window card - go take a visit - very inspirational DT work.

My friend Lesley had asked me to make a card for her husband Ronnie who is a keen sailor.

So a porthole card seemed like a good idea!

I recently recieved some fab sea themed fabrics as a prize from Ingrids Kaarten.

I have pieced them together for my view through a porthole.

The Background paper is a lovely painted wood effect K&Co paper.

Porthole silver and turquoise card cut on the Pazzles.

Printed acetate for porthole window, Screw head brads and Basic Grey lettering.


  1. Love your cool port hole window ... and what great fabric to use on the inside ... fantastic window design.

  2. Stunning card what a great idea the porthole I love it!
