Training Team Blog Hop

Hello and welcome. Today I am participating in a blog hop with some other demonstrators from a training and support group I am in. There is no theme but there is loads of very talented people in this hop. So sit back and get ready to be inspired.

I was inspired to create something a little different today. I have seen quite a few cards where the front panels are clear or partial, so that gave me an idea. I wanted to experiment with the panels from the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper. This is what I made.

I am really happy with how it came out. And it was a lot easier than I thought. 

The base is a standard tent fold card that you trim the middle front out of. Open the card out flat so in the next step you don't get glue on the inside of the card. Grab a piece of scrap card stock the same size as the back of your card. Lay the gold panel down onto the scrap card stock but don't glue it down. Add a very small amount of glue to the inside top flap of the card front and the bottom strip from the card front. 

Then glue down the top flap and lay the bottom strip down onto the scrap card stock. This will attach the gold panel to make your card front panel. Make sure you lift the completed front panel off the scrap quite quickly so it doesn't stick.  Cut some coordinating paper or card stock the size of the two small front flaps and glue to the inside. This will hold the gold panel securely in place. 

I have made it sound harder than it is, but give it a go, I would love to see what you make. You can share it with me through email or on my facebook group.
This is what the card looks like side on.  You can make the cut out section from the card front as small or as big as you like. Just make sure you leave enough to be able to glue the die cut panel to.

Now that you have seen my card, it is time to see what  fantastic creations everyone else has made.
