This card is for the Mix it up Monday challenge at Stamp TV, Going Gingham. Trying out something different today!! I added an acetate panel to the center of my card so that the inside sentiment would show through.
I cut an 8 1/2 x 11 to 4.25 x 11. Scored at 5.5, 7.25 and 9. The second and third score lines are were you are going to cut out your center panel. Save your bottom piece when you cut , you will reattach to the acetate panel. For the acetate panel I cut a 2.5" x 4.25". attach to inside of card bring in 1/2" to adhere to card. Take your bottom panel and reattach bringing in 1/2" to attache. Whala, you now have an acetate panel card.
For my base layer I used pink gingham paper cut a 1 3/4"x 4,25 for my top layer and a 2"x 4.25" for my bottom panel. Next I cut pattern paper at 1.25 x 4.25 for top panel and 1.75" x 4.25 for bottom. Ok now we'll do the focal image panel, bottom panel is 3.5" x 1.5" and your top piece is 3.25 x 1.25.
My image is from Gina K "Genevieve Giraffe" set and added a pink gingham bow, isn't she cute? Now just attache to front of card and stamp your sentiment making sure it shows thru the acetate.
I also decorated the inside to hide where I added the acetate.
Hope you have a great day!!
