Clear Birthday Card

Hi All!

Kristine here today with a simple layout that gets added interest from using clear acetate for the card base!

You can google clear card stock and find lots of possible places to get it.
I don't remember where I got mine one but I've had a stash of it in my paper files for a while.

I folded a 11" x 4 1/4" panel of clear acetate in half to make my card base.  Then I added the patterned paper and the punched paper strip to the card.  
I used Scrap Happy Glue to adhere the paper to the acetate card base.  It shows a little from the back side but it dries pretty darn clear!

The image is Inked Poppy from The Rubber Cafe, and colored with Copic markers.

The sentiment is from Fabulous Phrases by The Rubber Cafe and stamped with VersaMark ink, embossed with white embossing powder.
If you haven't made a clear card I challenge you to give it a try.  
I think you'll be excited by the results!

Thanks for stopping by!
