Using Diecuts to Create a Layered Card around Negative Space

I love using punches and die cutting in my card and paper crafting projects - I'd have to say it's an addiction with me!  So I'm always looking for different ways that I can do just that to create a simple card.
Here's my card today - I saw this idea awhile ago watching uTube, and decided to give it a try with today's card.

I used a Nestabilities die to create my window or negative space however you could achieve the same with a punch or even a x-acto knife.  The key is to pop-up the top portion of the piece with the window and layer behind it another piece of white card stock the same size.  Giving you dimension and an element to work around on your front layer.

Farm Fresh Diorama Card- Creative Cafe' - Kit for August

Greetings Everyone! -
This month's kit is a fun one and today I have a Diorama card for you that works just perfect with all the scene building stamps in the Home Grown and add-on Farm Fresh stampsets.
Here's a look at my finished card...
If you've never seen these or made one before - they are so great for providing layers to your card, yet still allow you to fold flat for mailing!  Head on over to my Rubber Cafe' post here and see how I put this together!
