Blossom Like the Crocus

Hi, Diana here to share with you an Easter card for this week's On the Edge challenge.  I do apologize for the photograph being lopsided but it's hard to not get too much glare on the clear acetate.  In real life, I think it looks pretty neat!

For my background, I used several layers:  the base is the stitched die from My Favorite Things Blueprint 13.  I then used the scalloped edge from the Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders set on pink designer paper; another two of the dies from the same set on white card stock; then finally another two from my blue/green designer paper. It sounds like a lot of work but it went very quickly and the layered look is well worth it, I think.  It's also the first time I've used every die in a set on one card!  :)  

My finishing touches were the white Memory Box Fresh Foliage and a fussy cut image from Our Daily Bread Designs' Earth's Gladdest Day colored with Copics.  The clear acetate was embossed with black detail embossing powder and cut out with the banner tag from MFT Blueprints 13.  

Clear card stock is a new Heartfelt Creations product.   It's heavier than transparencies for overhead projectors and heat resistant.  I hope you will give it a try!  Order by Wednesday, March 11 and get 15% off this product by using CLEAR15 coupon code at checkout.

Thanks for stopping by!!!  Until next time...

Diana, how did you emboss your sentiment on the acetate? Is there a trick to keep it from getting all wonky from the heat? I love the way you used it and let your BG shine through!!

The acetate or clear card stock is heat resistant! Wonderful stuff. There is a link to it above.
