Clear Scraps Christmas

This week the Stampendous Team are playing with some fantastic products from our friends at Clear Scraps and excited to share our finished projects. You can image how much fun it is to have a clean canvas to start with but when you use Clear Scraps it’s a see-through canvas!
Clear Scraps sent me the Send it Clear xmastree clear card set to play with.

Here is the card I came up with.



I started by stenciling the Graduated Dot Stencil with Silver Embossing Paste on the back panel of the card.



I added a sentiment panel that I stamped with 'Tis the Season Perfectly Clear Stamps set.

Then I stamped Poinsettia Background with Versamark ink and embossed with detail silver embossing powder.

I traced the tree onto the embossed paper and adhered it to the cut out tree on the clear scrap card base.

I finished off the card with a pretty red ribbon from May Arts.



This is how the card looks when you open the first flap.

Here are the gorgeous Clear Scraps/Stampendous Stamps/Dreamweaver Stencils projects the other Designers have made for your inspiration!
