When I was a little girl I used to absolutely LOVE playing with those paper-doll books that had the press-out clothes that you would dress your paper-doll up in.  This is an ATC version of that and the possibilities are only limited to your imagination!  This is basically a flat background card with stamping on it that you can "dress-up" by adding a hinged acetate window (I used Washi Tape to add the hinge on the left hand side), then the acetate has extra bits & pieces added to it to create the finished ATC.  What a great idea for a card though too!  What you will see below is the ATC with the acetate window closed and then the next picture has the acetate window open so you can see just the plain card underneath.  The accessories and sticker words are added to the acetate but you can see in "October", the wording is on his t-shirt on the base card.   It's important that you don't add dimension to your card otherwise the window won't close flat.  A little Stickles glitter or wording stuck down is fine though.
Hope you have a play with this technique and have fun with it.

"What dogs hear"...  (my favourite!!!)

"Incognito"... (the hat, glasses and bow-tie stickers 
came from a $2 shop)

"Nerdette"... (glasses & googly eyes suit
 this style really well)

No Barb, this is a brand new technique but hopefully you should be able to work out how to do it from my basic instructions above. :-)
