Clear to See
Do you believe in love at first sight? Having struggled with getting over a relationship, when my mother mentioned that there was someone I should meet at a wedding we were about to attend, I wasn't too keen on her suggestion. But as I saw him walk down the aisle as the best man of my childhood friend, I knew he was the one. And after hearing him say "If you are sorry, you'll dance with me later" after I accidentally (truly, honestly, accidentally) bumped into him during a line dance at the reception, confirmed my belief that he was "the one."
Moxie Fab World's 75 Creative Card Challenges Week: Make a Card with a Window. I pulled out the Lifestyle Craft's Nesting Circle Dies, and with one die cut a circle from the front of the card, and with the next size larger die, I die cut a circle from the Adhesive Backed Metal, adhered it to the inside of the card base to create a mirror look. The heart is suspended by fishing line to obscure some of the mirror when viewing the card from the front.
When you open the card, the metal provides just enough of a reflection so that the recipient sees his/her own reflection.

Today's Tip: In the words of Cath from Moxie Fab World: "The whole purpose of creating a window on a card is to add an interactive surprise." My interactive surprise is seeing your face in the circled mirror when opening up the card and finishing the sentiment.
