This the type of card that I make using acetate the most. It looks very airy and is very impressive. A few tips on making this type of card are;1. Use the same size mats for the inside and front
2. Place the inside mat first, then line the outside mat to line up
3. Adhere the mats using small glue dots.
4. For the ribbon also use glue dots.
The second card that I am posting is a card that has an acetate sheet that has been stamped then adhered to the body of a card.. It shows the color of the card body through the acetate. You may also want to try using a patterned paper behind the acetate or stamp the with a "Hero Arts" collage series of stamps.
As you can see from the above card, it appears to have depth behind the acetate. It's a very small effect but it is there.
Remember that using glue dots or Scor-Tape works the best to assemble these acetate cards.
The ink for stamping on acetate that I found to be the best is the "StazOn Opaque" series.
So, when you have time and want something new to try, try using acetate on your cards.
Remember all comments and questions are welcome and appreciated.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!
