Today's class was rather challenging for some ! The most challenging part being stamping on the window sheet and lining it up the images using the SAMJ ! We all got there in the end with some going home to do some " homework "!
Here is the first card we created ! how cute is this frog locked in the jar with all the flies teasing him !

Inside of the card - this is a note card size card , perfect size for my little froggie !

Here is the second card we created using Birthday Blooms stamp set 


And another I created to show my ladies you can use this technique without having to use the SAMJ and lining the flowers up perfectly is not an issue .  
As you can see I still rather like to decorate the front of my cards ! 

  If you enjoyed looking at my samples and would love to create your own I am including the written instructions I gave to my ladies who attended class yesterday and I'd like to give bid shout out to Meg Pagano for sharing her wonderful video which is where my inspiration came from ! 
This is a difficult card to explain in a written tutorial so if you get lost along the way you can refer to this YouTube  w 
This is where my inspiration came from although I have made a few adjustments as you will see .
Your base piece for the small note card size is 10 1/2 inches x 5 inches 
Score this piece in the landscape position @ 3 1/2 and 7 inches.
Bone fold the left portion over to the centre and then take your 1 " circle punch and punch a 1/2 circle through both pieces .
Your insert pocket measures 8 1/2 inches x 3 inches . 
Fold in half and score . 
Now take your paper snips and cut a small slot in the folded section ( you can use a punch such as a long label type punch but it is not recommended to do so as it may damage the punch ) 
Your insert measures 2 1/2 " x 4 1/2 "
Adhere DSP card front
Position jar framelit in centre of card front  and run through the Big Shot .
Now take your window sheet and art piece and stamp the frog onto your white piece .
Then line it up using the SAMJ and stamp in exactly the same place on your window sheet.
Colour frog using Cucumber Crush .
Now , attach both pieces together with a glue dot . 
Punch a 1 " circle and adhere to the two pieces using tear and tape , then attach your ribbon after punching a hole in the centre .
Slide the art  piece into your insert , then take your 1/4 x 3 piece and carefully attach to the base of the art piece , carefully making sure your other pieces are out of the way .
Now position slider piece in place and then apply dimensionals to the back of it .
Close card , it will now be on the opposite side .
Then , take some Dimensionals and carefully position on the centre part of the card and close again but make sure your slider is up out of the way so that it doesn't become stuck .
Decorate card as desired .
You will find measurements for a full size card in the Meg's wonderful video , thanks again Meg 😀😀😀
