Window Thank You Card

Here's another thank you card (I'm in the middle of making a set of them for a friend).  For this one, I used my Silhouette Cameo to create layers with windows in them, so that you can peek through to see the image on the card base.  I didn't make a window on the base itself; the image is stamped on the front of the card base.  To dress up the red layer, I stamped it with the pretty flowers from My Creative Time's Spring Chicken Backgrounds stamp set.

The sentiment is from My Creative Time's More Gift Card Sentiments.  I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  As you can see, the embossing powder wanted to stick to the flowers too.  I tried first drying the background flower image with my heat gun and then rubbing a fabric softener over it, but I still had a hard time.  If anybody has some suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

The image inside my window is made from the trees and the bird stamp from Papertrey Ink's Through the Trees.  I used dimensional adhesive to pop the layers up from the card base, giving it more of a window effect.

Here are the products I used for this card:
