Technique - Window Sheets - Part 2

As I mentioned in my last post, we also made a card using the Window Sheets as the card base. I saw this idea on another demonstrators web site, Phyllis Johnson.  I changed the color, because I just love Bermuda Bay and this is one of the current in-colors that I am really going to miss.

The clear card base is the Medium Window Sheets, which is just about the same thickness as a piece of card stock.  The card size is 4" x 4", which allows you to get four (4) cards out of one 12"x12" window sheet.  (They come 2 in a package).  You will need to use a permanent ink to stamp on the window sheet.  I chose White StazOn.  When you stamp the image you need to be careful not to smear it and they do tend to slide.  So be sure to stamp straight down, do not rock the stamp and lift the stamp straight up after stamping.  It will take a few minutes to dry completely on this type of surface.  The nice thing about using StazOn ink is that if you do make a mistake, just use some StazOn Cleaner to remove the ink, then stamp again!

Remember when creating a clear card, whatever you put on the inside is visible through the front.  So be sure to put the same size card stock (or a bit small) on the inside of the card.  Ribbon works well around the front to hide any adhesive on the reverse side.  But, if you are using the Snail adhesive, it has a subtle look, so it's not as bad.
