Adding Dynamics to your Cards Using Transparent Panels!

Hello, Sweet friends! How are you today? Summer ended here in my city, and I’m really sad! I love warm days and green grass, but now it’s cold at night and we’re going to prepare for some White Nights. But that’s one reason I love to craft – we can create summer things even in the coldest days! And I want to share with you today this simple, but bright card.

I love to use transparencies in my cards sometimes, do you? They add dynamics and interest to the project!

Also this sweet monkey from Monkey Business set is one of my Sweet Stamp Shop favorites.  I like that I can hang it anywhere! And I like to add elements of scenes in my cards, so, I made this card. I hung a monkey on the branch from the Owl Be Genius set, so they look like these two stamps are all from one set!

In the bottom of transparent panel, I put a strip of paper with wooden texture, trimmed in a semicircle, and added a big flair button that looks like a big ball, as a reminder of the circus.

And this is how card looks if you fold it. All details – front panel with monkey and background with sentiments – represent a single image.

And if you open the card, you’ll see the cute large tag.
