Welcome back! If you’ve been following my recent posts, you know I’ve been having fun with Online Card Classes Clear & Sheer class this week.
This card was made from Day 4 – More Techniques. One of the videos showed how to emboss clear acetate and use die cuts for your sentiment and writing space on the inside of the card. I upped it a notch by adding a vellum intricate die cut to the front, with a bit hanging over the edge. Believe it or not, it was almost harder to photograph this card than it was to make it!
What is it about acetate and vellum cards that makes them so intriguing?!! Just holding this card in my hand makes me smile! The acetate came with the stripes on it and I wanted to see if the embossing showed up any different in the colored area versus the clear. Not really.
Here’s the inside of the card with room to write your note on the back of the butterfly…
And the back has a space for your ‘made by’ signature.
I used some glossy accents for the antennae and put a dollop of pollen on the tips. : ) I also highlighted the edges of the vellum butterfly with Stickles to make them stand out a bit more.
As you can tell, there were plenty of cool ideas in this class to get you jump started – and I didn’t even use half of the techniques covered. I look forward to playing around with acetate and vellum more in the future!

Wow, what a beautiful effect with the striped acetate and that vellum butterfly! I’ve never even thought to emboss acetate but I love the effect.
It’s pure, unrefined genius!!! This card is so bright and fresh and wonderful and beautiful and intriguing and creative and fun!!! The acetate you used must be heavier than most of what I have. I just love that pretty striped acetate! Great job making those perfect antennae with GA. I fear that I had tried that, mine would have looked like rejects from last year’s specimens! Ha. Thanks for sharing this wonderful card!!!
