Clear & Simple



Back with another Hanglar card and this time I have taken the inspiration from DOUBLE DUTCH challenge blog to make a “Clear” card.

It’s been a long time since I’ve made one of these, but after seeing the stunning DT creations I couldn’t resist making one this afternoon..


I kinda forgot that you have to decorate 4 sides of the card to cover the unsightly backs where the glue tape is showing, This also then makes the acetate base a little more sturdy..

you can see this a little better in the next pic..


Again I opened a new DCWV stack, this one is called ‘Latte’  It’s all lush with greens/purples and browns… I love it!! and as with the ‘Green Stack’ papers I used in the previous post the quality of these papers is fab!

I’ve added my new lace from the Llewelyn-Bowen collection and the gorgeous multi layered paper flower that was a gift from my friend Mandy.. [Thanks sweetie!!]

This all gives it that extra touchy feely factor.. which, as it happens is the theme over at A SPOONFULL OF SUGAR , so I can enter this card there as well.
