Step-Up Your Cardmaking with Brenda - See Through Card

Hello, Miss Ink friends!! Brenda here with another installment of "Step-Up Your Cardmaking". Today, I'm creating a see-through card! I was inspired by my friend Carol Hintermeier, although I did things a little different than she did, so it was a bit of trial and error. Let's get started!!

I began by stamping the images from the Gardenia Stamp Set onto white cardstock with InkOn3 Blackout Ink. I stamped each image twice & colored them with Copic markers. I needed a way to hide the glue on the back after I glued the images to the clear card. If you have the Coordinating Dies, you can just cut them from white cardstock. Since I don't have the Coordinating Dies, my solution was to temporarily glue a blank panel of white cardstock behind the images before I fussy cut them out.

After fussy cutting them out, I pulled them apart and now I have the white pieces to place on the inside of the card, behind the colored ones.

I scored and folded a panel of clear cardstock, then adhered the colored images to the front and the white ones to the inside. I trimmed all of the excess from around the perimeter of the cardbase.

For the inside of the card, I die-cut three scalloped rectangles from white cardstock.

 I added adhesive to the top of one and adhered two of them together.

They were adhered to the inside of the card and the third one was adhered to the back to hide the adhesive. This also gives me a spot to add "stamped by" to the back of the card.

The sentiment, from Everyday Sentiments, was white heat embossed onto a black cardstock strip, then adhered to the front of the card. I also adhered another black strip to the back to hide the adhesive.

 

I really LOVE how this turned out!!

 Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I hope you have a great Tuesday!!!
