Heart Window xcu06696
My first card uses mostly all die cuts. And what fabulous dies they are..a Welcoming Window (just the right size, I might add!),  Shutters, and a Flower Box Filler! For the background, flowers, awning & hearts I die cut the pieces out of several different sheets from the Shabby Rose paper collection. I attached a piece of transparency behind the window then ran them both thru the embossing cycle again so the windows would have some shape.
Heart Window06691
The little flower pot on the right was made using the same window box die..I just moved one end to cut it shorter. The little girls silhouette was stamped on paper to put behind the window. I thought they fit perfectly with the greeting & also gives you a little view inside the window. I also added a section of awning die cut out of the pink gingham inside the window as a valance. 
Heart Window inside 06695
Here’s a look at the inside. I used the negative of the flower box filler as a stencil and sponged the flower border thru it. This card is 5.50 x 4.25.

I love all the ideas that you share (like, putting the transparency thru with the die; cutting that flower box down for a smaller size, using the negative of a die for a stencil)……so many great ideas. I really like the stamp you used on the second card (Belles Vignes–it really looks versatile. Thank you.
