Acetate Window

Recently I’ve been playing around with acetate and decided to share a card with you featuring an acetate window in the center. My card features two Dina Wakley little birdies to remind us that spring is “just around the corner.”

Here’s how I put this card together:

  • I cut my usual A2 sized card and trimmed the front panel 1 1/2 inches below the top
  • I cut a second strip of white card stock measuring 1 1/2 inches for the bottom
  • I cut a piece of clear acetate to measure 4 1/4 inches  wide by 4 1/8 inches tall
  • I embossed the acetate using the Allegro embossing folder from Cuttlebug
  • Using my ATG gun I attached the acetate to the top panel and added the extra piece of white across the bottom
  • Next, I cut some green gingham card stock to decorate both the top and bottom panel
  • Using my Scallop Basic Edges 2 Die (My Favorite Things) I cut two scalloped borders from purple and white polka dot dp and attached one to the top panel and one at the bottom
  • I added a pretty lavender organdy swirls ribbon bow across the top and a strip of white pearls to the bottom
  • The front sentiment comes from the All Things Are Possible (Heartfelt) stamp set and is stamped in Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide
  • I stamped an image from Little Birdies (Dina Wakley) in Versamark Watermark on watercolor paper and heat embossed it with midnight black embossing powder
  • Next I diluted some oxides (Seedless Preserves, Walnut Stain, & Wild Honey) with water and using small paintbrushes I applied it to my birdie image
  • After fussy cutting, I added the birds to the front acetate panel
  • Inside I added a light purple card stock panel and decorated it with matching designer paper and a flower stamp from Flora Grande 2 (Heartfelt Creations)

Now it’s your turn….Stop by the February Link Party and link up any project that includes a few products from companies Cropstop carries in the store.
