How to make a see-through card (Altenew Build-A-Flower: Honeysuckle Release Blog Hop + Giveaway – $200 in total prizes)

The new Altenew Build-a-flower Honeysuckle is a lovely big bloom and I thought why not use this floral to create a layered look with a see-through card. By layering different elements around the window and inside the card, you create depth and dimension which adds interest to the card for the recipient. Remember, you can use this technique with any stamps and dies you have in your stash so you can start creating this card straight away!

You should have arrived here from the fantastic Virginia Lu. You can always start at the beginning of the hop over at the Altenew Card Blog here.

Creating with the ALtenew Build-a-flower Honeysuckle

Start by stamping the large Altenew Build-a-flower Honeysuckle bloom in blue inks, and stamp two of these florals. In addition, also stamp a selection of the foliage, including the small bud to tie in with the main flower and to add a pop of blue inside the card. The colours used were: Cummerbund, Something Borrowed, Suede Shoes, Garden Party, Grass Skirt, and Deck The Halls. Use the coordinating dies to cut the images out.

To create the window, die-cut a circle out of a white card base, and then also from a white card panel. Adhere a piece of acetate down over the window opening on the front of the card base. Before adding the white card panel on the top, add some of the stamped images around the outside of the window and then adhere the panel on top sandwiching these in between.

Add some of the stamped images on the front of the card, clustered around one corner, and add with varying depths of foam pads to add dimension. In addition, add a couple of small stamped images inside the card, aligning them up so they correspond with the other stamped images around the window. 

Finishing of the see-through card

To finish this card off, add a heat embossed sentiment and then embellish with some sequins around the card.
