For today’s Splitcoast Stampers “Try a New Technique” Challenge TLC442 ~ External Frame/Internal Greeting was to put our image and sentiment on the inside with a “window” to it from the outside.

Hambo Farm Front

This challenge was very fun but very much a challenge. My Cricut was too narrow to lay the card flat and run through with the circle and my punch handle was too short… I had to create an acetate card front and draw my circle on it, then punch the circle from the card. In the end it came together (we will not say how many tries it took…haha!)
