Acetate Cards Are My New Favorite!


This is the first acetate card I made, and I really do like them! They are a bit difficult (for me) to photograph, but you get the idea.


For this card, I cut a piece of acetate to 5" x 10" and folded it in half. I stamped the swirls in white staz-on ink. The main image and soft sky layers are attached on the outside of the card, the pomegranate layer is on the inside front, a white stamped layer is on the inside back (see other picture), and the gray layer is on the outside back of the card. Clear as mud!?! This way your adhesive doesn't show through. I cut out a small flower to go on top of the main image, attached a half-back pearl, and finished the card with some gray taffeta. Enjoy!





Supplies:

stamps - Baroque Motifs, It's Your Birthday (inside)

paper - acetate (write-on overhead transparency, whisper white, soft sky, purely pomegranate, basic gray

ink - white staz-on, soft sky, purely pomegranate, basic gray

acc - gray taffeta ribbon, white half-back pearl
