Hi everyone! Happy Monday! I’m posting on the a2z Scrapbooking blog today and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project – a totally clear acetate card! My first one ever and I’m addicted, lol! I used the Hero Arts Color Layering Gold Fish stamp set and coordinating Hero Arts Color Layering Gold Fish Frame Cuts along with the Hero Arts Acetate Note Cards to create my fun encouragement card.

First of all, acetate is extremely hard to photograph without shadow and glare, but I did the best I could do against a gray background. I stamped two large and two small gold fish and cut them with the coordinating dies. I placed one large and two small gold fish on the front and the other large one on the inside which lines up behind the large one on the front when the card is closed. For every stamped image, I die cut the same shape from white cardstock to place on the back of the acetate to hide the Scor-Tape. I stamped the sentiment and air bubbles in black StazOn ink.


Here’s a shot of the front with the card opened up almost all the way.


And here’s a shot of the inside. I added White Blizzard Glitter Drops to all the pieces of seaweed for a little shimmer. Really loving how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
