See Through Card for The Spot Challenge #125

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my project for this week's Sketch Challenge over at the Spot.  I created a fun little see through card featuring the Forever Fern Bundle from the 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  Here's a look at my card.  

Here's a look at the card sketch that inspired my card today.  You can click here to play along with this week's sketch challenge and check out what the other Design Team Members Created.  

Tips & Tricks: 

To create my see through card I used Whisper White Cardstock (two pieces) cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and die cut both with the Many Medallions Dies.  I took these two pieces of die cut cardstock and sandwiched between them I cut down a 6" x 8" Cello Bag that I cut apart.  This added stability to the card front.  I then cut my card base from a piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock.  I cut my card base to 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2".  I cut off most of the card front except enough to attach the card front too.  

I to attach the card front to my card base with Tear & Tape Adhesive so that it would have a nice strong bond.  I then added a large scallop circle cut from Sahara Sand Cardstock with the Layering Circle Dies.  I ended up cutting two plus a Whisper White Scalloped Circle as well.  I also cut out a Circle from Whisper White Cardstock that would fit inside my scalloped circle.  On some scrap Whisper White Cardstock I stamped a few of the images from the Forever Fern Stamp Set.  I stamped my images in Pretty Peacock, Old Olive, and Garden Green Inks and used the matching dies to cut them out.  I attached the stamped images to the front circle with Stampin' Seal Adhesive.  

I then added some of the Just Jade Gingham Ribbon from the Forever Flowers Ribbon Combo Paper to the card and then stamped my sentiment with Just Jade Ink onto a strip of Just Jade Cardstock.  I added my sentiment strip with Stampin' Dimensionals.  You may be wondering what happened to the other Sahara Sand Scalloped Circle and the Whisper White Scalloped Circle.  Well I used the Sahara Sand Scalloped Circle to the inside front of the card to hid my adhesive from the scalloped circle on the front. I then added the Whisper White scalloped circle to the inside of the card so that I would have a place to write a message.  I made sure that all the scallops were lined up so you couldn't see them.
