Standing outside looking in...

This is by far one of my favorite stamps from Rubber Romance, Kristy. She was in the October Paper Pretties box along with this fab paper from the Pretties boutique. The stamp shows a gal looking through the window at the shoes for sale, but I wanted to actually get a feel for the window. First I layered the patterned paper onto the card, in order to get the perfect layer I had to go through both pieces of paper in one cut. I used the rectangle Nestabilities to cut and emboss the window. I added a piece of acetate in between the paper layers to make the window effect. I stamped and cut out the image of the woman and attached her to the front of the window, then I masked the woman out of the image for the inside of the card. I have to tell you that was quite tricky but I was thrilled with the results. Lastly I added a small sentiment from my Pieces of Cake set by PTI, added a little ribbon and adhered it onto the bottom right corner. Here is another card using basically the same supplies and just changing the layout and design a bit.
