Art Impressions Challenge - Window Card (cut to see inside)

For this week's Art Impressions challenge - Window Card (cut to see inside), I picked the Bakery Window Shoppes set.   I took the layout idea from the Shoppe Window Idea Book.  Nothing original here, but hey! That's why Bonnie gives us the idea books! :o)

I stamped the Shoppe Window onto an X-press A2 size piece of cardstock, using Memento Ink.  I then stamped all the smaller images onto a second A2 size card, including the wooden crate.   Time for coloring! Used my Copic Markers to fill in color.

Next, I cut out the images and used a craft knife to cut the inside of the window out.    I adhered a layer of design paper (BasicGrey) to the outside of the base card, adhered the cut out window and then cut out the window again - this way, it's less layers to cut through.

To give me a guide for placement on the inside, I lightly traced the inside of the window with a pencil. I then adhered the cakes sitting on the crate and erased the pencil lines. I added a strip of design paper.  Lastly, I adhered the barrel and light pole on the outside.
