Man(ic) Monday: I Can See Clearly Now

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone, I can see all obstacles in my way Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day.---Johnny Nash

I just love this song...ok, I know I am dating myself but that's ok. The 50's are great!... and, I mean the age, not the decade! :)
Here's another man-ly card "clearly" made with that classic, Lovely as a Tree. You can get SO many different looks with this set. It is THE set to have! It's been around a while...and I think it's a keeper.
The base of this card is made from one of our Window Sheets from Stampin' Up!. I also stamped the image in Black Stazon on a Window Sheet and did a silhouette cut around the trees. I sponged over the stamping with my Pumpkin Pie and Garden Green Craft Ink Spots and then clear embossed to give it some texture. I attached the image to the front of the base with two Metallic Eyelets set with the Crop-A-Dile and tied some Hemp Twine through these. On the inside, I adhered some of the Woodland Walk Designer Series Paper and then covered the back of the base with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock to make a neat adhesive showing through the Window Sheet base.
Try working with the Window Sheets on your next project. These are clearly a good choice to add to your supplies!
Wishing you a bright, sun-shiny day!---Lisa

This is such a nice card, Mrs. Lisa. I was curious about the clear cards. Do they come as a full card size or is it a half card attached to the card stock back? Just curious. Really cool!!

Hi Claysey!
The clear window sheets come in 12 x 12 size and you cut and score to your desired size. You adhere your card stock or designer paper to the window sheet. Let me know if you have questions! Good to hear from you!
