Embossed Acetate Snowflake

Ta Da!!!! Michele at Island Scrapbooking told me never to heat acetate. Then I stumbled on a youtube video that shows you how to do emboss on acetate! I just had to try it and what do you know- it worked! Guess I lucked out and tried it out on some thicker acetate that I had. I love the look and dimension it gave this card. Sorry- I know its hard to see because the acetate reflects everything, so hopefully this next photo will help you to see it better. I added crystals to accent the rest of the card. Darn- forgot to show you the inside! When you open the acetate flap, it will then allow you to open the red card inside to reveal the sentiment. All I can say is that these photos don't make the card look too nice. Hopefully you can stop by the store and see them in person! Supplies:
  • Snowflake stamps- Hero Arts
  • Crystals- Kaisercrafts
  • Queens gold embossing powder
  • Ribbon
  • Acetate
  • Cardstock- Bazzil
