You know I couldn’t wait to dive in, so here’s a quick look at my card…



[three_tenth last][/three_tenth]

I wanted to create a submarine window that peers into the deep ocean waters. Press the button to illuminate the scene outside. Then, when you open the card, you can see more of the scene. I stamped and ink blended the scene on circles, to mimic bubbles.

To light up the window on the front, I sandwiched the three lights of my EZ-Light between foam and the acetate window panels. (I used acetate and the Porthole die on both sides of the window, with foam in between.)

I’ve got a full length process video coming soon to show you how I assembled this card. Get your supplies now, and we can assemble it together…
