Stampin' Up! Expressions (of Love)Thinlits
November 18, 2013
Let's take a break from holiday cards and take a look at an expression of love card using Stampin' Up! Expressions Thinlits.
The base is of a window sheet from a retired Designer Series Paper collection that was in my stash, Night and Day. I am partial to black and white/vanilla and was sure to stock up on some extra packs of this collection before it was no longer available.
The "love" focal point from the Expressions Thinlits was cut from the Silver Foil Sheets from the Holiday Catalog and mounted onto the Window Frame Framelit. The Full Heart is punched from Red Glimmer Paper to help convey the message.
The trick to using window sheets as card bases is to "hide" the adhesive with layers that compliment each other adhered on the front, inside, and the back of the base. Here's a peek at the inside. Layer on front outside, then behind on the inside with the same repeated for the inside sentiment with a layer on the card back.
