Build a Blossom Clear Card

Stampin up build a blossom punch clear cardTurn Stampin' Up! Window Sheets into elegant and unique clear cards.  I saw this gorgeous card designed by Debbie Olson and opted to CASE it, swapping in peeks of new Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog products. 


  • Stampin up build a blossom punch fabulous phrases NEW PRODUCT ALERT!  If Stampin' Up! makes a new stamp set with with a coordinating punch, it goes straight to my wish list.  The flower petals and leaves are part of the Build a Blossom stamp set and were punched with the Blossom Petals Punch.  Both are available Jan. 4 with the release of the Occasions Mini Catalog!
  • TWO MORE NEWCOMERS!  The pretty pattern inside (back) of the card is from Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper.  Think vintage almanac or nature periodical!  The Sweet Stitches Fabric Designer Brad should go immediately to your Occasions Mini Catalog "Gotta Have It" List!
  • The secret to a successful clear card:  Bury your brads and adhesive by attaching the mat behind the window sheet.  So my flower and sentiment are on the outside front and the So Saffron mat behind it is on the inside front.  Make sense?  I did the same with the interior back.
  • I used the medium weight window sheets for creating this 5 1/4 x 5 1/4" square card.
