TLC 326 Sentiment Underneath

Hello everyone!! It's my turn to host the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast today and my challenge is called Sentiment Underneath.
It's pretty simple...just attach an image panel on the front of your card with a brad at the top only. Then stamp the sentiment under the image panel on the cardstock, patterned paper, or another panel. You can make a card or just use one piece of cardstock for your card since the sentiment is under the front panel...you really don't need an inside to the card.
You can write you message on the back or make the front movable panel large enough for the sentiment and a message.

This is a great way to conserve cardstock, use up all your scraps, and make a thinner card for mailing!!

The chandelier image from Rubbernecker's Clowns and Crowns set was embossed on Night of Navy cardstock with white ep and cutout with the Fleur De Lis Square Nestabilities. It was attached to the background panel with one brad only. The sentiment is from Rubbernecker's Butterflies are Free set. The RN Wild Garden Border was stamped with Night of Navy onto the SU dp and the seam binding, button, and twine finish it off.

Recipe: Stamps: Rubbernecker Clowns and Crowns #SKU 528, Wild Garden Corner #SKU-539-04, Butterflies are Free #SKU-538, Paper: White, Night of Navy, Stampin Up! dp, Ink: Night of Navy, Versamark
Accessories: Brad, White Embossing Powder, Fleur De Lis Nestabilities, Seam Binding, Twine, Button

Thanks for visiting...be sure to stop by Splitcoast and join us in the TLC challenge...I would love to see what you create!!!

Hi Joan, what a special card, I love the delicate stamping of the sentiment and the flowers in the corner, and then the chandelier is such a lovely element. With the seam binding bow and the posh brad, it really is gorgeous. Have a good day. CoB

Hi Joan, Love this card! I somehow missed the hidden sentiment which I think is fantastic! Love the blue color scheme of this card, it is lovely!

This is too cool and fabulous, Joan! I did one of these not to long ago and called it hidden sentiment. Is there a technical technique name? LOL! Great card and challenge!
