I remembered that I had an "amazing" stamp, so I dug it out. I decided to create a window for my card, so the sentiment could be inside, but only my word would show outside the card.
I started with a cardstock base and stamped my "amazing" on the inside. I cut the front of the card appropriately and created a window with a fairly thick acetate sheet. I then added a portion of the cardstock that was cut off to the bottom of the card.
I decorated the card with pattern paper on both the inside and outside, as I wanted to cover the area where the acetate overlapped onto my cardstock. It gave a cleaner look to the inside of the card. I decorated the top of the card with a banner made from cardstock and pattern paper.
Hard to see in the photo, but there is a white embossed stamped image of the banner string. I decided to add a 4th banner piece, and so you can barely see it in the photo peaking out between the banner flags.
I then finished my sentiment inside the card, adding a "you are" that can only be seen once the card is opened. I love how the back of the banner shows through in the window from the reverse side.
This is a great card design that I've done before. When your images are on the window itself (stamped or die cut) it gives a bit of a floating effect.
Hope that 2014 is . . . amazing!
