Embossed Acetate Birthday Card

Good morning friends.  Today I have an elegant acetate card to share with you. Using Embossing Folders with acetate is a great way to add a little pizzazz to your cards.


I started with a clear 6 x 12 folded sheet of acetate.  Using the 6x6 Crafter's Companion Embossalicious Lattice Embossing Folder, I embossed half of the acetate.  This will be the front of the card.  After I embossed it, I sprayed the embossed area lightly with Spray and Sparkle Glitter Varnish to give it a gold sparkly finish.

The "Have the MOST Wonderful Birthday" stamped image is from the Stamp-It Australia Sentiment Swirls.  To get the gold raised look, I stamped the sentiment with my VersaMark Pigment Ink pad, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  To line up the inside paper die cut square with the outside die cut square on the cover, first add the square inside your card.  Now close your acetate card.  Because you can see through it, you will be able to perfectly line up the square on the cover with the inside one.  When your card is closed, only the outside square will show.

I finished this card by added pearls to the center of the embossed diamonds and tying a ribbon bow along the top.

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a look.

Have a great week!
