I used this photo as an excuse to make my first ever "clear" card. You know - those "floaty " cards made from transparencies or clear acetate.
Well, I tried anyway. After I created the design in my head and made all the elements - I reached into my drawer to pull out my acetate - and then realized that my acetate was only 5"x9". So instead of the 5 1/4" square card I envisioned, I have this wimpy 4 1/2" square card that does not have enough acetate around it to float at all. Oh well...
So here it is. I used Flora Ginormous from Odd Bird Planet to make the hot pink flower. Its colored with Copic Markers. The scalloped square is made with the threading water border punch. A little tricky, but not bad.
I can't stand to have adhesive showing - so the scalloped panel is on the front of the acetate, and the green is on the inside (to cover the adhesive). The same on the inside of the card- white square for writing and green on the back.
See what I mean? It really needs more "float". Although - to be honest I'm not sure I'm too fond of the acetate cards. Its a novelty - but not something I'd make often.
So.... for next week. Guess what? Debbie came to the rescue and sent me a bunch of magazine pictures to restock the "Inspiration Shoe box". Thanks Debbie!! So here is one that she sent.
If you'd like to play along, just post a comment with a link to your creation and I'll highlight you in next week's post.
