Acetate Card

Last week's tutorial on SCS was an acetate card. It was so elegant yet seemed simple to make. So today was the day! This was fun and actually was pretty simple. Here's the link to the great tutorial on SCS: .
The basic idea is that the acetate is the card base. You have to stamp on it using StazOn or another similar ink. Regular ink won't dry on it. For the front, I stamped the two medallions from True Friend, cut them out, and added a rhinestone brad. I mounted that on a 2 1/4" square of Purely Pomegranate with ticket corners. The Basic Gray layer is 2 1/2" square and is attached on the inside of the card. The sentiment is stamped on a 2 1/2" square of Shimmery White. It's lined up with the Basic Gray so that it's not seen when the card is closed. The last layer is a 2 3/4" square of Purely Pomegranate that's attached to the back of the card. Cool, huh? I added the Basic Gray taffeta ribbon with 2 jewels from the Pretties kit tied onto the ends. (You can thread the beads on by cutting a long, very narrow point on the end of the ribbon.) The ribbon has the added bonus of covering up the part of the design that I smeared. (Acetate is slippery, so be careful when stamping!)
If you make one of these, be sure to post a link here so I can see it.
Happy stamping!
