Clearly Size

This card was for Amy's Clearly Size Matters Dirty Dare Challenge. The challenge was to make a 3 1/4" x 6 1/5" card and to incorporate something clear into it. I started with the window. I attached acetate behind the window and stamped the sentiment on the acetate with Jet Black StazOn. The flowers are stamped inside the card in Red Riding Hood. The other clear thing I used was the buttons. I tied some polka dot organdy ribbon through the buttons to embellish them a little more. For a finishing touch, I added faux stitching all around the card. The stamp set used was Serenity from Verve Stamps. If you haven't been by the Verve Forums at SCS, come join in the Anni-VERVE-sary! There are sketch challenges posted every day, sneak peeks of the Beautiful You set coming August 12, and you can win free stamps!! So please stop by and join in the fun! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Serenity (Verve Stamps); Paper- Red Riding Hood, Basic Black (SU),acetate; Ink- Jet Black StazOn, Red Riding Hood (SU); Accessories- clear buttons (Foofala), polka dot organdy ribbon (May Arts), paper piercer, Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Finished card measures 3.25"x6.5".
