For today’s post, I have created a special see-through card, showcasing the Winston Takes Flight stamp set and its coordinating dies, with the new Sky Borders Die set.
I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock, and colored Winston with my Copic markers. I die-cut the images with its coordinating dies.
To create more stability to my card, I used a heavier weight white card stock to die cut my clouds three times. I also die-cut a piece of acetate measuring 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.
I cut the front panel of my card base, leaving about ¾ inch. Opening the card, I adhered my acetate sheet, making sure that the card is a standard A2 size. I followed this step with adhering the other cloud borders die on the front lower portion of the acetate. Since this is a see-through card, I wanted to cover the adhesive behind, by layering another clouds border die-cut. This also gave it some dimension. Using my Xyron Mega Tape Runner, I adhered my stamped image on the front panel, as well as the banner sentiment. To cover the adhesive at the back if the stamped images, I die-cut the same pieces with some white card stock and adhered it on the back.
To finish off my design, I added the cute sun die-cut, and stamped the small cloud images from the set on the inside of my card, adding some pink hearts. Here’s the card:
I hope you like my card and got inspired today. This design can be easily mass-produced.
