It's time for another JUGS Saturday Challenge. The technique chosen is to use acetate on your card. This means making a clear card or using it as an accent.
Alicia Weiman's birthday was last Wednesday so I want to wish her a HAPPY BELATED BIRTDAY. I created a card in honor of her birthday. It is entirely created on the front of the acetate card. The first picture above shows it with a liner so you can see the design better, and the second picture shows it without the liner.
I used rub-ons for the flourish, small butterflies and flowers. The large butterfly (Gina K Designs) was white embossed on vellum and colored on the back with a marker. It was attached to the acetate, just on the body, so the wings are dimensional. I created a small envelope out of vellum. Additional rub-ons were added on it. The Happy Birthday greeting (GKD) was stamped in black and cut out with a small square Nestability then inserted in the envelope. A few pearls and a bow were added to complete the top of the card. I created an "inside" insert using white card stock. Attached to the front is a piece of pink Basic Grey design paper. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create a border along the bottom.
I posted another project using a clear acetate pillow box three posts down called "Snowmen Melt Your Heart".
I am enjoying being a Guest Designer for JUGS this month. Hope you will check back next Saturday for another great Challenge.
