Two in One

That's right, post number two for today. The fabulous Becky Oehlers is holding a challenge in honour of her birthday and blogaversary to use clear cardstock. I quite like the look of clear cards, so I figured I'd make one.

Here's the outside. I texturized the blue paper, attached it to the yellow cardstock then cut out the circle with a nestabilities die. I added the scalloped circle and brads because the front was just too plain without it.

The inside is full of fishes, wishing "birthday fishes", of course. I was totally inspired by this one by Nichole Heady. I tend to avoid gel cards though, because they don't keep well. They're great if you use them immediately, but if you don't they tend to get very distorted.

Stamps: Pond Life
Ink: Orangerie, Summer Sunrise, Lemon Tart
Paper: Spring Rain, Lemon Tart, White, Summer Sunrise
Accessories, etc.: Acetate, brads, texture plate, nestabilities

  5. Clear cards is always good in looks. I am also working on the clear cards. Your both cards are really nice. Keep adding more in your list.
