I seem to be getting a little obsessed with clear acetate at the moment and trying to think of new ways to slip it into my designs. I was also desperate to use my new Teresa Collins 'You make me Happy' 6x6 pad to do ANYTHING as I love the papers so much.
This is such a pretty card and I had a few ideas but not the products so had to think outside the box.
Unfortunately I had to get 'handsy' with this card as I couldn't think of a way to keep the card together without getting paper clips marks etc on the cardstock and needed to show what the card 'window' would look like.
Basically I created a window for my greeting so that its stamped on the inside of the card.
So, I got my wish!! I used the Teresa Collins papers I wanted (as well as the sequins from the same collection) and some acetate.
I really wanted to use the warm gold sequins but had nothing to link them too and the gold cardstock I have is too yellow. So thats when I decided to slice up the 12x12 paper from this collection that has gold circles and used strips of them as accents.
I like this card a lot and Phoebe does too. Can imagine we will be crafting after school today as we did yesterday. So nice to have a hobby to do together!
Better link this up to the CASE Study Challenge while I have a moment. I'm in the middle of baking 2 batches of chocolate chip cookies for Max to take to his school 'overnight' visit to a Marae this Thursday. He is so excited (thank goodness) and I know he won't be very scared. I will probably sleep worse than he does that night.....
