Clear acetate card



Have you ever made a clear card? These are fun cards to make! On this card, I used White Stazon ink to stamp the snowflakes on the clear transparency. It's rather slippery, so you really have to have a steady hand when stamping on transparencies. Basically you just stamp down, and pull straight up. You get the best results that way.

I'm still playing with Big on Christmas. It's such an easy and fun set to stamp with. You don't have to do anything special with it - just color in with markers and you're all done.

On this card, I randomly picked my colors: Not Quite Navy, Rose Red, and Confetti White. They seem to work rather well for non-Christmassy colors. I left the card plain and simple - clear cards don't need a lot of embellishments or fancy treatments. This card would be easy to mass produce if you are running out of time to make your Christmas cards. :-)

Have you made any clear cards? Show me!! :-)
