Create this colorful floating card with:
Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper (#130141)
Daffodil Delight card stock (#119683)
Whisper White card stock (#100730)
Tag It stamp set (#130303)
Stampin' Write Markers in Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie
Brights Collection Stampin' Write Markers(#131259)
Regals Collection Stampin' Write Markers(#131262)
Glue Dots (#103683)
SNAIL Simple Neat Affordable In-Line adhesive (#104332)
 
Start with cutting the Mosaic patterned window sheet into a 4'x8" strip.  Score at 4" and fold, creasing with the Bone Folder.  You have created the base for a 'floating' card!!
This adorable chameleon is reminiscent of the little guy on the popular Tangled/Rapunzel movie (a favorite of our Disney movies).  This Tag It stamp set has a great collection of fun stamps and serves a higher purpose as Every Purchase of this stamp set supports Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and families during their hard times!! 
 
Color/Paint directly on the stamp with the Stampin' Write Markers.  Huff and place on a piece of Whisper White card stock. I love how the colors are all coordinated so that my projects come out sharp.
Cut the colorful and patterned Quatrefancy page into 3-1/2" square.  You need two.  Have one piece of 3" square Whisper White and Daffodil Delight.  Center the Daffodil Delight on one piece and Whisper White on the other.  Using Glue Dots on all four corners.  This will be a clear adhesive that is ideal to hold to the Window sheet card. 
 
By having it cut 1/2" shorter, it will float.  Center the back against the front and squish - this will make it layer perfectly!
Using the Glue Dots, adhere the 'Celebrate' image on the front of the card.  It is now framed and coordinated with the patterned and solid card stocks and window sheet.
Because our Designer Series Paper is double sided, the coordinating image and color will be on the inside.  It is sturdy as the Window Sheets are top notch.  A perfect 'floating' card!
From behind it's sharp and colorful!  A perfect card that will surely live for much longer than the party on one's shelf, wall or fridge.
This colorful card is ideal to celebrate someone's day.. no matter their age!  Light up their life and send some color and style.
 
Wrap this up.. Send this 4" square card in a coordinated envelope!!  Sure.. using the Quatrefancy Specialty Desinger Series Paper with our Envelope Punch Board (#133774) and you can hand deliver or mail this card 'wrapped' extra special and coordinated!!
With a groovy, coordinated lining - the double sided paper really gives double the pleasure!  Here the 3" Whisper White center is framed and perfect to write your personalized wishes on.  (Not too much or too little space either!)

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
