|Ma Belle Cherie -- La-Vie!|
Here's the card:
To make this card, first cut and stack the top layer (here, white) at your desired sizes. Layer them together temporarily using a light touch of double-sided removable tape. Stamp your background images (here, several different images of shells) in multiple, complementing colors. Center your sentiment on what will be the top layer.
Next, separate the layers, removing the double-sided tape. Cut mats for each layer approximately 1/16" surrounding the top and middle layers. Adhere the white layers atop each of the mats, and then on top of the card. Wrap the upper layer in ribbon and tie into a bow.
I also added an inside panel to write a sentiment inside, because the card paper is so dark and not everyone has a white opaque pen.
