  1. Jennifer, thanks for the informative video! My question is…can you clear heat emboss the fish images before you cut them out with your die cutting machine. It would seem to me that it would be easier to heat emboss these small images if they are still on the larger piece of paper background.

  2. These fish are so beautiful. I love this clear window technique and am surely going to try it. Thanks Jennifer, awesome as always!

  3. Super fun card Jennifer. Love the whole design with the fish, the clear window, pearls and seaweed. You always do such an amazing job. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Beautiful card. Loved the video showing how to add the acetate. I just love the look. Those fish are just the cutest! Thanks for sharing your ideas.

  5. Wow! This card is certainly a “cut above” the norm. The stamp sets, colors,acetate window and pearls look stunning together. I love it.

  6. Great card…love the acetate panel and how your technique. I will have to try this. As usual you’re video is so good, short but to the point! I like that.

  7. Jennifer, you are so awesome! Gorgeous card with practical tips that anyone can do. I always appreciate your videos and look forward to the next one. Thanks so much.

  8. I dont know if anyone can help me (and I feel like a dummy asking this…like the answer will be DUH) but when Jenifer cuts (for example) a 1/2 inch strip off of the cardstock and the other part of the cardstock is hanging off the left side of the trimmer (how the heck does she know she is trimming 1/2 inch??? The only way I can figure is that she has measured and made a pencil mark on the cardstock. Or am I missing something?
