I have been checking out the challenges at SCS lately. The Clean and Simple challenges, seem to be my style.
Today's challenge, CAS18, was to use Coral/Pink with Kraft and one other color. I chose to use light pink and then white for my accent color.
The idea for the "clear strip" came from Barbara. She was describing a card to me over the phone tonight, and I just had to try it for this challenge.
Here is a detailed view of the clear strip...
I used my Creative Memories Wavy Trimmer to cut about a 1.25" section out of the front of the card. I then adhered a clear strip from a ShortCuts Clear Full Sheet in the blank space. A background stamp was then used, with White StazOn, to create the decoration on the clear part.
