Framed Becky Card

A couple of weeks ago I shared a card I made using the two stamps to make the front and back of a little girl. For this card I am using those same stamps along with my Cricut! Now she can either look out the window or from a picture frame!
Stamp Becky (Art Impressions stamp UMT1519) using Stazon ink on 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper and color her with Tombow watercolor markers. Cut her 2 pieces out and glue them together.
Using the Cricut die cutting machine and the Fancy Frames cartridge cut a matching pair of frames at 2".

Cover the front of an A2 card with pretty printed paper. Beacon 3 in 1 glue is great.

Check to see where to place the frame inside the card, according to where Becky can stand.
Trace the inside of the frame, to show where the first matt knife cuts should be.

Slightly enlarge that window using scissors.
Glue the inside frame in place.
Glue the matching outside frame in place.

Glue Becky looking outside the window.

If you like glue a picture across from Becky, so she will have a background behind her as she looks outside.
A few Becky cards!

Loved the card from the front just seeing Becky peek out the window -- opening it up and seeing her back was wow! Thanks so much for sharing on Busy Monday!
