Just a reminder you have until 3/24 to link up your CAS Mix Up Challenge card! This is Susan's challenge for us.
For my card today, I used heat embossing on acetate, stamping, die cuts and half pearls.
I stamped flowers from Corner Adorner: February Set by PTI (just $5!) onto a strip of acetate using Versamark.
I used an Embossing Buddy over the acetate first - but it still left little bits of black embossing powder in the clear spaces. So I decided to use Alcohol Inks on the back of the acetate so then the black bits looked like splatter!
It is tricky heat embossing acetate - it's easy to melt it - so you just have to experiment to see the best technique for the acetate that you have.
I die cut the front of the card using Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical Die from PTI. I cut a piece out of the front panel and adhered the acetate panel using ScorTape on the edges. Here you can see how it's see through when you open the card.
Here's a photo of the Alcohol Inking process - I first embossed the black flowers on the acetate, then added several colors of Alcohol Inks onto the felt pad and applicator and pounced the pad onto the back of the embossed acetate.
The sentiment is from Sentiment Staples - Birthday Mini Set from PTI (another set just $5.00!)
A really impressive CAS Birthday card I think!
