How to make a see-through card – Painted Leaves stamp & die set!

I’ve often seen see-through cards and thought how fun they look. It wasn’t until I saw the Painted Leaves stamp set from Catherine Pooler Designs that I thought I had to make one. I want the card to look like the leaves are falling down and I just cannot get over this colour scheme I went for. Makes me feel all warm and autumnal! Let me know if you’re tried a see-through card before!

The new Boho Fall collection from Catherine Pooler Designs features lots of stamps & dies perfect for Autumn/fall and there is even a Halloween stamp set for those that love it!

Created two-toned inked leaves:

Start of my stamping the bold layers of the leaves from the Painted Leaves stamp set. Use the following colours to stamp the leaves in:

How to make a see-through card

Do not remove the stamps from your MISTI. Instead, add a different colour to stamped leaf to the bottom half of the stamp. Next, using a blending brush, blend and soften the edge of the ink and stamp again. This gives you a two-tone inking to your stamps. 

Heat emboss the pattern layers of the leaves from the Painted Leaves stamp set in gold and use the coordinating dies to cut the images out. 

How to make a see-through card base:

To create your see-through card base, score a piece of card at 1/8 inch from the edge and then cut this 1/8 inch from this line to end up with a strip 1/4 wide.  Add tape adhesive to both sides and removed the backing sheet to adhere 1 sheet of Judykins Embossable window plastic to the cardstock, lining up the end. Trim off the excess card and you now have a tent fold card base that is see-through. 

Add your leaves to either the front or the back of the card base and trim off any excess. You can use these off-cuts to fill in any gaps. Next, die-cut the leaves out of white cardstock and colour the backside of the die-cut with the same ink colours using the direct-to-paper method. 

Adhere the coloured die-cuts inside the card to cover up and hide the adhesive. Lastly, stamp a sentiment from the Give Thanks Sentiment stamp set and add it to the front of the card.
