Tutorial: A Clear Card by Brigitte Grant

Brigitte Grant has shared her instructions to create this clear card.  She also talks about making her own background paper using stamping.

Please visit Brigitte’s blog here for more of her work.

Here is my see-through card that (I) made recently for a challenge.

‘The challenge called for a round card, and to follow a sketch as a guide. (Also) no printed paper should be used!
So… as a stamper for many years, I surely had few tricks up my sleeve to make my own background.  It’s been quite a while that I have done this (as) my scrapbooking has kind of taken over.  So I got my brayer out, some few inks for choice, some white glossy cardstock and decided for the resist technique.
I stamped my white cardstock and an ageing block with Versamark, inked my brayer with the purple ink and rolled over the cardstock.  Then I placed a CD over it (to trace and cut for the round shape), stamped the ‘butterfly’ in beeswax with a stamp, and stamped ‘Magic’ wording from a Cherry Pie stamp with black Stazon ink.
Then I trimmed a smaller round purple piece of handmade paper, spritzed some Moon Glow Glitz over it, and attached over the main round card.  I added my main image from Artchix studio, flowers, etc. A piece of acetate approx. 12inch x 6inch was cut and trimmed, folded in half (press the spine of the card with the back of a metal spoon) and placed. I adhered the main round card over it with some strong double sided tape, added greetings on bottom right corner (using a rub-on transfer from Daisy D’s) and accentuated the corners of the card by drawing stitches with permanent black marker.
The inside of the card hasn’t been so bad in terms of hiding the glue but as an option, you could just cut a second same sized round shape to adhere on the inside of the card to write a message on.
Thanks Brigitte!
