Snowflake Joy

My friend Yolie gave me a box full of transparencies and told to create something fun with them. I took on that challenge and stumbled upon this card at: kept pretty true to the original design, but switched it up a little.

If you've never used acetate (transparencies), it's very easy. You cut it in exactly the same way you would your paper with your paper cutter. I scored it with my scorer and finished it off with my bone folder.

I stamped the snowflake images with a Stazon ink pad. You will need this type of ink or a Stampin Up Craft ink for the acetate surface. The Stazon dries very quickly and is what I prefer to use.

This is the inside of the card. Since you are using a clear card base, when adhering your focal image to the front of the card, you will be able to see the adhesive on the inside. You can fix that by adding a focal image on the inside of the card in the exact same spot as the image on the front cover. Problem solved!

What a fun and unique card to give someone! I still have a ton of transparencies, so I see many more acetate cards in my future.

Hope you'll try it out too. TFL!
