Clear Cardstock

IMG_1477

Happy Saturday to everyone! I hope you had some time to craft today. I was inspired today to work with clear cardstock. I really wanted to emboss my images and then color them with alcohol inks but that didn’t go so well. When I tried to heat set my embossing powder, the clear cardstock started melting. So sad. Never one to give up, I rerouted myself and stamped my images with StazOn. A note to those who have never stamped on clear cardstock or glossy cardstock, do not move your stamp while pressing down or your image will smear.

So, for this card, I used the Italiana Riviera Collection by Heartfelt Creations. I love this collection! Definitely one of my all-time favorites. For my base, I attached my clear cardstock to a piece of white cardstock. I decided what image I wanted for the inside of my card and placed it roughly where I wanted it to go. I then stamped and colored all of my images on the clear cardstock.

For the grapes, I used Spectrum Noir PL4 and PL5. The leaves are DG3 and the vines are EB8. Since the cardstock is clear, you might notice you need a darker color compared to when you color on white cardstock.

I used design papers from the paper pack to embellish the inside of my card. For the outside of the card, I stamped, colored and die cut the large grape cluster from the Italiana Grapevines stamp set. I used my crocodile to set a brad into the leaf and attached it on the side of my card with some wine colored ribbon.

I took a photo so you could hopefully see the different layers.
