These window sheet techniques show how to give a depth of field look to your handmade cards. Notice how the dragonflies from the Dragonfly Bundle and from the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper look like they are in the air above the flowers.
In both of these cards, a the window frame was made using two of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. Place the smaller one inside of the larger one and run through the embossing machine.
Cut a piece of Window Sheet the same size as the larger frame.
For the first card, the dragonfly has been punched out of the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper with the Dragonflies Punch. Pour a small amount of Multi Purpose Liquid Glue on a silicone mat. With a sponge, pick up some of the glue and dab it on the middle of the punched out dragonfly – right side up!
Add this to the underside of the Window Sheet – and when it dries, you will see no adhesive!
For the second card, stamp the dragonfly fro the Dragonfly Garden stamp set directly on the Window Sheet with Stazon Ink. Give it a few moments to dry.
Flip the window sheet over and color on the underside with Stampin’ Blends.
Now, back to finishing both cards.
The flowers are stamped on a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White cardstock, using the direct to paper technique. For this, I stamp the image first in the mail color, which for this card will be Mint Macaron. Then use a Stampin’ Write Marker to go over the flowers, picking up the green and replacing it with the new color. Clean your marker in between swipes across the stamp by wiping in a scrap piece of paper.
Layer that piece onto a piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ Basic Black cardstock and then on to the card base.
When all of the coloring is finished, blow on the stamp and then stamp it on your Whisper White cardstock.
Attach the window sheet (acetate) to the underside of the frame. Use Foam Adhesive Strips to attach this piece to the base card.
