Window to the World Graduation Card

     Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday #13 Impression Plate Tricks #2 was a fun one!   Erin's tutorial is wonderful; I'm glad she emphasized the importance of paying attention to the direction of the die.  I used my Sizzix texture plate, and the Mat Stack 3 Die.  It created the "Window to the world" look I envisioned.

      I want to give credit to Lindsay's You Make the World card in the last PTI challenge.  She masked off the CARD (instead of an image), and stamped WITHIN a frame; how cool is that?  That is what inspired me to stamp within the window.  
       I wanted to "float" the sentiment, because I like how the sentiment sits in the nook of the window.  I used a section of "Clear PVC cover" beneath it.
I am also entering in Less is More's Week 13 Lucky Dip Thank you or Congratulations.  This gives me a running start on my graduation cards! 

Thank you so much for stopping by. :)
