Hello! Watching Jennifer McGuire make see-through cards this morning inspired me to make a mad dash to the Interlocking Frame and String Art Circle. I was so excited to make this card, it felt a bit like morning aerobics, except way more fun!
Jennifer’s video is the original and I highly suggest watching that for overall instructions; however, I wanted to offer some additional tips and tricks specific to the Interlocking Frame. This frame has a lot of intricate detail, which may offer some challenges to a card design such as this, but it’s totally doable, easy, and the results are stunning! Make sure to check out the short video below for some tips in using this particular die for this card design.
The mixture of the dies, holographic paper, and see-through design makes this an absolutely stunning card. As it sits on display, different colors appear just depending on the angle of light that is catching it. It’s almost like glass etching. In the photos above, blue turns to a gold, and even pastel as seen below:
The details of the String Art Circle are so stunning, with so many options. In the photo above, I’ve die cut one out of black. All the pieces were left intact to create a background for the holographic outline. Left over negative pieces were used to embellish the center, along with an iridescent black pearl. Wow! This has to be one of my all-time favorite cards.
For the interior, I added another String Art Circle cut out of the holographic paper to match the exterior. A light gray paper creates the background, with a white center for an embellishment. It’s a great card to have on hand because it’s so versatile. Depending on colors used, this could be very masculine or very feminine, and is great for any occasion from wedding, anniversary, birthday… even a holiday greeting would be beautiful. The inside font could be casual or formal, so it’s great for any style, too! Room for writing a note or even a larger sentiment is on the back.
No matter how hard I try, photos simply do not do this card justice. Check out the video below for some tips, tricks, and to see this card in action!
