Clear Card Workshop Day 1


Today is the first day of a four-part clear card series I want to share with you. This series of cards will be offered at my August 15th Clear Card Workshop. Watch for details on that soon.

This first card is designed for your most special friend. Someone you've known for a long time and can always rely on. Someone you know that you will remain friends with no matter what. Hopefully we all have a friend like this in our lives.


This card is square with rounded corners, one of eight cards in Close To My Heart's Clear Cards pack. It has a monochromatic feel with accents of black either by stamping with Staz-On or by utilizing rub-ons. The large flower on the front has been stamped with Staz-On onto a piece of clear plastic from a discarded Sizzix package. Easy to stamp on and cut out. A clear button with black waxy flax has been added to the center.

All cardstock edges have been inked with Desert Sand and the border squares (don't they look like stone tiles?) have been textured with Desert Sand on a sponge tool. Two holes have been punched on the side of the card to accommodate the black ribbon.


With clear cards you always have to be mindful of what's going to show through on the other side, so it's best to use Liquid Glass and spread it thinly and evenly over the entire piece you want to adhere. This will have the least show-through, in my opinion. And if you have unwanted show-through, simply stamp a few little flowers and put them over those areas like I have on the inside of the card.
