I Can See Clearly Now...

Hi everyone and hope you're all having a great Wednesday.

As you know, every month the wonderful Craftwork Cards have a Project of The Month and this month is all about The Classics. It's a fabulous collection of all the great things you would expect from them, including enough blank cardstock and envelopes to make 24 cards, Candi, lots and lots of die cut messages in all shapes and sizes and the amazing new, Alphabits. All you need to do, is to add paper and's as easy as that!!!

I had so much fun with this kit and made lots of cards which I will show you over the next few days but this is the first of those shares and I hope you like it!
It's been a while since I've made an acetate card but I thought I'd give it another go and I am over the moon with how it turned out. I just hope the photos do the beauty of an acetate card justice...believe me, unless you're David Bailey, acetate isn't the easiest of products to photograph. lol

When you're making acetate cards, it's so hard to find really good quality acetate that will withstand the weight of embellishments and not become all, if like me, you have had trouble in the past, then it will not be a problem any longer because I would recommend Craftwork Cards acetate. It's fabulous quality and it will not let you to speak!! hehe...
Using a Tim Holtz stamp, I stamped onto the acetate with white Stazon and then adhered the pretty pink flowers that I made using the Rose Creations Spellbinders Die and papers from the Cottontail paper pack. I added some of those infamous Spellbinders flourishes that I might have mentioned how much I love, just once or twice in previous posts, some Candi and finally, a circle message from the Project of the Month.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your day.
Thank you for stopping by and looking at all my little creations and for all your lovely comments.
See you soon.
Love Emma

  3. It has been a long time since you made an acetate card! :-o but good things are well worth waiting for! :D

    Sometimes I think these cards can be a bit gimmicky but when done properly they can be quite spectacular! When the acetate accents instead of dominates the card, then it's done its job properly! ;) as it has just helps to bring out the beauty in the flowers and the embellishments so perfectly! LOVE the pokladot flower pedals as well! Those are brilliant!

    Super well done...a clear thing of beauty! ;p
