Stamped See Through Cards + GIVEAWAY

Hello. Today I am sharing how to create see through cards made up of stamped images! This technique works with many stamps you may have and gives amazing results.

[All supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post. Multiple stores are also linked in the parentheses following the product name. Compensated affiliate links may be used at no cost to you.]

A few months ago, I shared a video showing how to create see-through cards with background dies. (You can see the video HERE.) So I thought it would be fun to come back and share how to make see through cards from stamped images. Although I used large flower stamps today, you could use any shape or size images.

My first card features the incredibly gorgeous Altenew Build A Flower Peruvian Lily Set (SSS | ALT). I stamped several flowers and leaves with Altenew Ink and then cut them out with their coordinating dies. Be sure to check out the video to see how I connected them together with Gina K Connect Glue for the front panel of the card… with the help of Glad Press N Seal! I added a scored “hinge” at the top and added to a white cardstock panel… forming a card.

The sentiment is from the Altenew Life Is Awesome Stamp Set ( SSS | ALT).

This photo shows how you can see through the front of the card between the connected flowers. There is mini card glued inside to hide a personal message.

My second card has lots of open areas on the front of the card. After cutting out images from the Altenew Needlework Motif Stamp Set (SSS | ALT), I connected them together to create a card front. Again, there is a mini card adhered inside.

I added a sentiment from the Altenew Simply Hello Die (SSS | ALT) and Altenew Kind Words Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). I also coated the die cuts in a thick layer of Ranger Glossy Accents.

This next photo shows how the card front is see-through…

My last card uses the Altenew Beautiful Heart Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). These large images are great for this technique! Instead of having a mini card inside, this one has two circles – one adhered to the back of the front panel of the card and one adhered to the inside of the card – providing a place for the message inside.

The sentiment is formed from the Altenew Simply Hello Die (SSS | ALT) and Altenew Needlework Motif Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

And here you can see the see-through portion action on the card’s front…
