Wedding card with clear front by Jorunn

Today I will make a card with clear front, as these cards are a little elegant I wanted to make
it a wedding card...

*Card stock
*Transparent plastic cover
* Pattern papers
*Image - I have used "wedding carriage"
*Text stamps - I have used "Wedding wishes"
*Embellishments of your own choice

Start with cutting the card stock into the size of the card you are making, 
I have used 15 cm x 15 cm (6" x 6").
Now, cut the transparent plastic cover to fit the card, and add 2 cm at the top...
15 cm x 17 cm.
Score and fold at 15 cm on the top on the plastic cover.... 
leaving a square part of 15 cm x 15cm, and a folded part of 2 cm x 15 cm.

Place the transparent paper on the card stock like this, and glue it 
on to the card stock

Also... glue both the sides on the card stock together after gluing the
plastic cover on.
You now have a pocket on top of the card and a clear front.

Make a tag to fit into this pocket on top of the card....

Let's start to decorate....
I have decorated a base of pattern papers - 14 cm x 14 cm, 
and now glue it on the card stock underneath the clear front...


Now it is time to decorate the transparent plastic paper a bit too... to make it show a little....
I have used a pearl swirl on my card....

Another tip is to use dry embossing on the plastic sheet too....


And now we are all done.....





I hope you liked my card with clear front, and please let me know if you try this,
I would love to see your take on cards with clear front.

Have a nice day, and thank you for stopping by today!
