Today I'd like to share an acetate card with you featuring the newly released Bonnet Bouquet stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.
The front of this mixed media card was created with Embossable Clear Acetate sheets, Tonic Studios die (Mixed Edge Rectangles Layering Basics die set), and Super Thick Silver embossing powder.
To start off, I sprinkled some Super Thick Silver embossing powder onto the embossable acetate and heat set it from the bottom. Don't try this with regular acetate as the heat will curl and melt the acetate.
The image was stamped with Memento Ink (Tuxedo Black) and colored with Copics and colored pencils. Various glitters were used to accent the flower centers: Sunny Daze, Guava Nectar, Orchid, and Raspberry Soda. Princess Anna Royal glitter was used to accent the ribbon and bow.
I then die cut a couple frames using the Tonic Studios die set. I love that they have little notches on each side of the dies so you can line them up properly and cut out an even frame.
VersaMark and then heat set it with White Detail embossing powder.
I fiddled around with the placement so that the flowers would show through the frame on the front and not be obscured with some of the Super Thick Silver embossing powder. Once I was happy with how it looked from the front, I adhered this piece to the inside of the card.
On the front of the card (the acetate), I adhered the frames and made sure the smaller of the two frames was positioned over the inside piece. I then adhered the fussy cut image on top. You still see the white flowers peeking around the edges of the focal image, but you don't see the sentiment until you open the card.
