CASE Study #184

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.....

Take care


  1. Beautiful Shona. Where there is a will there is a way.

  2. Shona, this is gorgeous! Love the window design you created, the patterned papers, the touches of gold and the sequins!!!

  3. Fabulous, Shona ... perfectly blended DP and sequins ... love the clear panel showing the inside sentiment panel! Anita :)

  4. I love this, Shona! I am putting this in my folder. It's one of the best designs I've seen using acetate; love the way the greeting shows through!! Hugs, Darnell
