Time for clear cards

Hi crafty people, 

With all the my love for transparent cards or clear cards and all the queries for the procedure of the same, I am back with a couple of clear cards to share on

Without wasting much time I will jump into the steps to make one:
Following are some easy steps for making of this card:

Stamp some floral bunches fromFlower in a Jar set with gold and color it, here I have used distress inks, fussy cut them and adhere them on a patterned paper.

Using the first panel as a base, draw the outline on a separate blank card stock. I have avoided the buds as I dont want them to stick to the card, hence giving a 3D look.

Draw the outlines on two more pieces but this time not the floral outlines, only the arc.

Stamp any background design on an OHP or acetate sheet, here I have used Quilted Love and have embossed it with Enchanted gold from Ranger. Stick the floral base cut out on it with any glue.

As you see, the glue can be visible from the other side as the card base here is a transparent OHP sheet! So, this look is a total No No!!

Stick the copy of the first base cut out on the other side to cover any visible traces of glue.

Stick the other two arc shaped card stocks to the other side of the transparent sheet. and its done!
Take a look

Sharing this project with

I have done an extra one to show it to you people about myriad possibilities with the concept of clear cards!!

Isn't it so much fun!
Hope you like this post. 
Happy crafting
with love
