Card and matching Envie


I made this card for my son's teacher who just got engaged on Valentine's Day! I have been dying to play with acetate in my cuttlebug and use ink. Sooooooooo, I embossed the acetate with the swirl embossing folder; painted the top with mint green acrylic paint which I wiped mostly off w/a papertowel just before it was completely dry. I used a black Stazon ink pad and rubbed it on the back side of the acrylic; the sentiment is a clear sticker on its own acetate (which I left on); I adheared that down with mint green heart eyelets to white cs and matted on black cs edged with my wave blade on my cutter; punched a square in the acetate and mounted all on the white card; I die cut multiple size squares frames out of white cs and embossed with swirls---then rubbed black ink pad over embossed parts; I framed the square cut out with one of these square frames; placed the metal diamond ring embellishment (which I had rubbed slighted with the mint green acyrlic paint for effect) in center of punched out square. Finally, I ran the envie thru the cuttlebug folder and added some scraps from the project to decorate it.

Unfortunately, I manage to miss both deadlines for the two challenges I was going to enter this in. Lesson learned, huh? :)
