Sending You Happy Thoughts

>> Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Good Morning Everyone!
My card share has an unusual element about it today....It's a Clear Polyester Sheet!  While I don't use acetate, or things like this very often, whenever I do, I always think the end result is really cool.  I cut the sheet in half and scored it in the center, before I sent it through my machine to emboss it.  Then I set it aside while I made the rest of my card. 
Very simply I stamped the Three Flowers with Butterfly, colored it with Copics and used my rectangle Nestabilities die to cut it out.  I also went ahead and stamped my One Line Happy Thoughts greeting, layering it to match my image, and again I set these aside to complete my base.

The red card was stamped along the bottom using the Polka Dot Background, and I added a strip of green glitter using some super sticky tape. Once that was complete, I placed my Embossed Polyester Sheet over the card, and simply tied a yellow ribbon at the top.  This keeps the two pieces together, but still gives it movement too.  Then I adhered the image and sentiment to the front.

Hopefully you like the idea of adding another element to your cards!  Have a good one :)
