BFF Monogram Diva SC161

Happy Weekend everyone! Ready for a sketch?

Here is this weekend's Utah Divas sketch. Remember to stop by the blog for links to several other participating Divas. There are always a variety of styles and ideas represented - don't miss them!

Looking through some of my retired stash of materials, I ran across some printed window sheets. I haven't been able to use the last couple of pieces because they are just so pretty. We do  not currently have any in the Idea Book & Catalog, but that's so silly of me - they are easy enough to make! So that's what I did - to get the look created here:
  1. Stamp the polka dot image (from Best Friends Forever) onto the card front. Here, I chose to use the same color ink and paper so it is Basic Gray Classic Ink on Basic Gray card stock. For a lighter look, consider using VersaMark ink.
  2. To create your clear panel, stamp the leaf image (also from BFF) with StazOn onto a 5" x 3 3/4" piece of Window Sheet. StazOn is rather sticky, so be prepared for the stamp to lightly stick to the window sheet. Just carefully pull them apart.
  3. Adhere your Window Sheet onto the card base with Snail adhesive. I applied the adhesive only where the vertical Basic Black strip was to be placed and a smidge behind where the 3 rhinestones are placed. I expected the adhesive to show more - you really have to turn it in the light just right to be able to see it. What a nice surprise!
Tip: Another alternative would be to use a Glue Dot in each corner of the sheet. They will be a bit more visible, but can be easily covered with a Rhinestone (like the ones used here) or additional layers of card stock (punched shapes, etc).
