Sandy Claws Transparent Card


This is for this weeks featured stamper challenge on SCS. This week the featured stampers is Bev aka Texas Grammy on SCS. Tex is also on the Hanna Stamps design team so I have been getting to know her a little better recently through emails. I enjoyed browsing through her gallery and decided to CASE this card, I have done transparent cards before ... but hadn't thought to use the nestabilities so of course had to so one.

As per the rules of the Featured Stamper challenge I changed at least 2 things.
  • I changed the image used
  • I changed the colors.
  • I used a different stamp to stamp my transparency going all over my background
One thing I did learn while creating this card is to assemble the scallops on the inside of the card before you actually stamp the verse ... for a transparency card it is important that everything lines up so you can't see them through the front when closed and if you stamp first your verse can be crooked!

Recipe:
Stamps: Sandy Claws - Gina K Designs; Snowflake - Hanna Stamps
Paper: White; Red; Transparency
Other: Black Ink; White Stazon Ink; Circle Nestabilities; Sheer Ribbon

I love this transparent card! I have only done one so far, but thought it turned out great. Is there more than one place to order nestabilities and can they be used with the cuttlebug? I so want to get a couple of sets...thank you!
