Happy Friday everyone! It is time for another one of Beate’s wsc. I’m all for having a little surprise on the inside of the card to continue the theme from the front….so I thought I would try it out on this card.
It is hard to see straight on, but I have a transparency sheet (acetate) within the main image with some of the details upfront and others in the distance.
Here is a pic of the card half open to show you which details are in the foreground:
This process of layers was very time consuming, but with the end result, I think it was well worth it. I first stamped the image in Old Olive ink on Whisper White and had to cut out most of the image to create the frame. The next layer is Acetate. I had to match up the cut out rectangle on all the layers of DSP and the Whisper White card base. I repeated stamping the image but with the colors I needed. I then cut out all the images and adhered to the Acetate with Mini Glue Dots. The background of the image (sun rays and whimsical swirls by the bird) are not on the Acetate. They would be part of the surprise on the inside of the card.
For the inside, I wanted the image to be a solid color with another hidden sentiment within the image that can not be viewed through the window when card is closed:
The inside is very different from the outside of the card. Very simple image revealed with a happy little sentiment. I stamped the image in Groovy Guava ink and the sentiment is Rose Red ink. You can see some of the details of the window to the left….there was really no neat way to hide all the craftsmanship , but I think it doesn’t look bad due to it all being white.
Now, make sure you head on over the the blogs of these talented ladies to see more samples for the wsc:
Have a wonderful weekend:)
