Clearly See-Through Cards

A clear card? How can that be? Is it really see through? The answer is: kinda. By using a piece of acetate, you can accomplish the look of an invisible card.

Here is an example of a wedding card I made. I used a full sheet of acetate as the base, so folded in half the card is 5 x 7. I then cut 4 pieces of card stock all the same size and lined it up exactly on the front, inside front, inside back, and back. When looking at the card, you can't tell there are other layers throughout. I also stamped an image on the inside back with White Stazon ink. This image will be seen throughout the whole card and I only had to stamp one side!

Stamps: To Have and To Hold, Full of Life, Hugs and Wishes
Paper: Acetate, Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Shimmery White
Basic Black, Bashful Blue, White Stazon
Striped Grosgrain Ribbon - Bashful Blue

There are a couple of exciting things coming to Thursdays in June!! Remember those SCIAB's that kept getting mentioned? Well, we had another one! This one is a baby themed one and so far the projects that have come in are FANTASTIC!

Another exciting event coming to Thursdays are Inspiration Challenges!! I have an Inspiration Team who include Bev Williams, Charmaine George, and Tandra Boyer who will be making samples to show for each challenge! I am very excited about this and hope to see you participate in a couple as well!

Stamp happiness wherever you go!! :)
