This post is part of a special blog hop Simon Says Stamp is hosting for their Holly Jolly release! You can find details for the hop at the bottom of this post.
I have often used clear elements on my cards for windows even a clear card or two! However, I think this project is my new, favorite way to incorporate a clear panel onto your card!
I laminated Distress Mica Flakes inside of a laminator sheet to make a frosted window effect, which looks AMAZING! Using Simon’s new Winter Florals watercolor cards (designed by Suzy Plantamura), I colored a beautiful panel that gets layered behind this clear window. This particular design is a tri-fold card, which creates a stunning effect for the recipient with all its layers and glitter.
The best part? This card is not bulky, so it will be easy for you to mail!
This technique was so much fun, I had to make a second card with the same idea!
Imagine making all sorts of cards with this laminating technique! Fill your laminating sheets with other glitters or even flat sequins for a truly spectacular effect. I cannot wait to try this same idea on a shaker card next!
