Clear Card - Pointsettia



This is the same image from 2 different angles. I really had fun with this card. It was made using stamps from TAC stamp set T-2701. The green CS is attached to the back side of the back flap using 2 red eyelets (one in the upper right corner and one in the lower left corner). The red CS is attached to the front of the back flap using double stick tape. The white CS is attached to the red CS using double stick tape. The Poinsettia image is stamped using the Noire Palette Hybrid Ink Pad and embossed with Transcendence EP. It is colored using chalks. The Holly stamp is stamped on the front side of the front flap using Staz On White and heat set (only because I'm impatient but heat setting is NOT necessary). The holly is colored from the back side of the front flap using green stickles. The Poinsettia in the lower left corner is made using several poinsettia parts and a leaf and is attached using a tiny gold brad. The ribbon in the upper right corner is just some scrap ribbon I had laying around.
The thing about working with acetate is that you're prone to getting a TON of fingerprints on the acetate. I try to remember to work with cotton gloves on so I don't get the fingerprints all over (the gloves can be found in the candy making section of most craft stores). If I forget to put the gloves on I just wipe over the card front and back on both flaps using a soft rag (we have several eye glass cleaning rags laying around the house and I snagged a few for use on acetate).
