Acetate Card

Happy New Year to you!!! What did you do for the New Years Eve?  And...what are you celebrating for the new year? We tried to watch a movie and both ended up falling asleep, with me waking on the couch and Paul in his recliner, LOL I guess we are getting a bit old {{{sniff}}}. That is OK, we celebrated the New Year with the birth of our brand new and first grandchild (a Boy) on the 28th of December. What a wonderful way to start the new year!

Of course I HAD to make a new card to celebrate the new year of crafting!!! This is not only the first card I made in 2010, but my very first acetate card. I used the wonderful Fred She Said Digital Stamps" Colored Decoupage Blossoms&BFlies". She sells the stamps colored or plain so that you could color them. I chose the colored ones for this card.

The acetate card came from Papertrey Ink. This is a nice thick acetate that is perfect for cards. The only acetate I have found in local stores is very thin and not well suited for making cards. The only problem I had with the thickness is scoring the fold, but I finally figured out that it was easier to just fold it in half and run my score tool over the fold.

Here is the front of the card

I made this card for a couple of challenges also

Pile it on challenge #30: Crystal Clear and can also be used for their #29 Anything Digital

Crafty Creation Challenge: Glitter & Bling

Stamp Something: New use something you got as a gift whether from someone else for yourself that is still unused.

Here are some other views:

I did not stamp on the inside so as to leave room for writing a personal note.

Have you used acetate before? I REALLY would love to see it, so leave me a link to it in the comment section, OK. :o)

Thanks for stopping by today, the first day of 2010!!!
