Little One Card

I made this card using a transparency technique I learned from my Stampin' Up demonstrator.  Basically, a portion of the front of the card base is cut away and replaced with a piece of transparency.  This way, the inside of the card can been seen from the front.  I used double-sided tape to adhere the transparency to the card base. 
I used New Arrival for the lettering inside the card as well as for the little feet on the outside.  I also used the shadow feature for the feet.
For the front of the card, I simply cut some patterned paper to size and attached.  I then added some ribbon and was finished.  It's a very simple card, but I love the effect with the transparency.

I will submit this card at CAS-tastic Challenges where this week there is a focus on sentiments, at Fantabulous Cricut for Challenge #12 Shower the Baby, and at Practical Scrappers for their acrylic, transparencies, and vellum challenge.

What a great design. I saw that challenge over at practical scrappers and I never thought of doing this. I save up all those covers from my cricut mats and I KNEW I would be able to use them for something. Thanks for the fantastic inspiration and for joining us at Fantabulous Cricut!
