Transparency Cards

I have always loved the look of transparencies on cards. I think they add a lot of softness to them. They also allow for a different type of layering to go on. Adding a sticker or piece of chipboard to the inside of the card and letting it peek through to the front is a great way of creating dimension. So, when I received my March Gossamer Blue kits and found the Webster's Pages transparent 3 by 4 journaling cards in them, I knew what I wanted to do. Here is the final result.


 On this first card, I stitched one of the transparencies to some cardstock, so that it became the card front. Some chipboard (MME) and a sticker inside finished it off along with some sweet enamel dots.

The transparency was stitched onto a journaling card here. I topped it off with the cameo and butterfly sticker.

I loved this gold dotted card so much! I traced a piece of the heart transparency and added it to the label o the card.  The little enamel dots were a lot of fun to add as details.

Next up is my favorite card. I love anything with sequins! So, I created a pocket with
one of the transparencies and filled it up. I cut apart some of the sequins for visual interest. And since those gold enamel dots are so amazing, I popped on a couple of those, too.

 This card is similar to the first. The transparency served as the cover, again. I added the chipboard and stickers to the front. Inside I added the letter U to complete the sentiment. :)

I love this little sweet set. Mint, gold and pink are favorite colors of mine, right now, so I had a great time putting them all together.

Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you have any questions!
