Cutaway Windows - Technique of the Week

I am happy to announce the Technique of the Week -- Cutaway Windows (June/July 2013 Technique Junkie Newsletter). The only real trick to this is picking the right embossing folder. I happened to have this one right on my desktop since I picked it up at a recent Stamp Show. Truly, I have an addiction to Embossing Folders, so I could have picked several with that would have worked!

I decided to add my color with the Smooch Painted Texture (December 2011/January 2012 TJNL). I have to tell you, I made a couple of cards for today's post. In one of them, the coloring was PERFECTION. I played around with embossing the inside of the folder, adding different papers, and other embellishments, too. Then I stamped the sentiment (a different one from the one above). I "eyeballed" it when stamping - and of course, I stamped it VERY crooked. Dang! I even tried cutting the card asymmetrically, but basically, it was toast! Note to self: Use the stamp positioner!

Can't wait to see what you make!
