A Window Card from the Clean & Simple Online Card Class

Still playing around with some of the cards for the Online Card Class.  In this one, Julie Ebersole embossed a card front and then cut out a window with a Label die and stamped the sentiment inside the card but so it would show through the window. 

I wanted to do this using the heart embossing folder...well, one problem, the hearts only go one way, so I had to cut a piece of card stock 4 x 5.25 and embossed that and cut out my "window", then using dimensional tape I adhered it to the white card base.  I stamped my sentiment (MFT) through the window, but it is only on the face of the card, not inside.  I still like this technique, it is surely clean and simple.  And what Julie did was make a whole set of cards this way...to give as a gift...the sentiment inside the window could be different for each card...maybe "happy birthday"  "thinking of you" etc...a very simple yet nice gift set to give!
