Picture My Life Fun!
Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are {10 } of us highlighting the PICTURE MY LIFE FUN!” 


This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. 

If you are coming from {Helen Gullett} Blog, you are on the right track!
Because life is too short for average cards...Lets Look at the PML Overlay Window Card Technique.

To recreate this card you will need the following items:
  • PML sheet from the 'Florence' paper packet
  • Poppy card stock
  • White Dasiy card stock piece 4x5
  • Scissors
  • Paper trimmer
  • PML Overlay
  • Adhesive



Trim you poppy card stock to and 8 1/2 x 11 
Trim your 8 1/2 x 11 (horizontal)  and cut at 5 1/2

You should now have two 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card bases.
Score them at 4 1/4

Cut one card base at from the edge at 1 1/4
Your next cut will be from the score line at 1 3/4
Using your scraps from these pieces, make the following cuts
1 1/4 by 5 1/2 and 1 3/4 x 5 1/2 
Cut your PML 'Hello' overlay down to 5 1/2 long.
Cut your Selected PML card from the florence sheet to 1 x 5 1/4
I then cut a second piece at 5 1/4 x 1 1/2. 




Trim off 1 1/4 from the bottom of your card and set it aside. 




Adhere your PML card to your poppy card pieces.


Time to adhere your overlay. Take off the protective backing.


I adhered to the top base inside first, then added the bottom border.  

Now Adhere your cut poppy card stock pieces to the inside, covering up the the overlay at the top and bottom.


Adhere your White Dasiy card stock to the inside and add your desired sentiment. top the front off with some sequins...


There you have The PML Overlay Window Card Technique. 




Instead of Sliding these into a Flip Flap, or adhereing it over some pretty paper to use as a traditional overlay, I used it as a window for my card. With the gold foil 'Hello' already marked on the overlay, it makes a perfect card sentiment. 

Supply List:  
  • Florence PML sheet (included in the Florence Paper Packet)
  • Poppy card stock
  • Picture My Life Gold Overlay
  • White Dasiy card stock
  • Sure Cut paper trimmer
  • Straight to the Top Stamp Set 
  • Florence blue sequins
