Crazy 4 Acetate!

The super talented Frances Byrne has challenged us to create a card or project using acetate! Head on over to the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog where you'll find all kinds of ideas for creating with acetate as well as AMAZING samples from the DT!

Now I have to admit that the acetate made ME crazy more so than me being crazy for it....at first!! Once I played with it for a while though, I got the hang of working with it! It was totally worth it as the results can be quite stunning...and unique!!

I made a 'Sour Cream Container' to go along with my card!


Here is a photo of just the card...apparently you can get a thicker acetate that is better for card bases...this is just regular stuff that bends really easy!!!


The image is from Inkadinkado. I used Cool Carribbean ink and cardstock and the ribbon is from Wal-Mart. I stamped the sentiment on a white piece of CS for the inside of the card and used snow flourishes (Inkadinkado) on the borders.

Thanks so much for stoppin' by and be sure to play along and share your creation with us on the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog! If you upload to SCS or any other on-line forum use Keyword C4C11!

Keep scrolling down to find another fun challenge to play with!!
