Hi Pinkfresh friends!

My card design today was totally inspired by Jennifer McGuire!

Jennifer demonstrated how to make a card using clear acetate sheets. I don't recall ever making a card this way. So, with some exciting new Pinkfresh Studio products from Februarys release, I went to work.

Let's talk about the florals. Those beautiful flowers and foliage are from the new stamp set called Happy For You. This set comes with coordinating stencils but I decided to use my Copic markers instead. Copics used: V09, V12, V15, G43 and G85. To make the image pop, I first heat embossed it in Liquid Platinum. I thought the bold violets would look fantastic with this....and, I was right. 

After cutting and folding the acetate to an A2 size, I wanted to sit the flowers on a centrepiece. Of course, because it's acetate I remembered Jennifer pointing out that adhesive or glue would show on the reverse side. Therefore, I heat embossed two circles and die cut them out using the brand new Around the Shape-Circles. I then die cut an extra two circles that would cover the circle on the revise slides. Hopefully that makes sense?

I heat embossed one of the fantastic bold sentiments from the Happy For You stamp set and placed it on the right just overlapping the leaves on the left side.

Guess what else was released in February?....Ombre Glitter Drops! For my card, the Magic Potion were absolutely perfect! I was soooooo happy about that.

Luckily, I created a reel for this card design. It was pretty difficult to photograph to really appreciate how pretty this card turned out. So keep an eye out on the Pinkfresh Studio Instagram because you will get a really good look at the completed design on the video. 

I don't think this will be the last card I make out of acetate and, I hope my card inspires you to also give it a try.

Until next time friends

Cheryl
