Embossed Window Sheets

Check out the little window in today's card! I had fun playing with my window sheets and trying some new ideas. To create this look, I embossed a piece of the medium window sheet with the textured embossing folder, Elegant Bouquet, and then sanded it lightly so it looks a little "etched." Click on the picture to zoom in closer. The twill tape has been stamped with classic ink and I LOVE that look - - kinda "natural!"

The second picture to the right is of the inside top of the card so you can see how I covered up the window portion. I used my punches to create the framed look and i think the whole thing turned out kinda cool.
