*Clearly it's Clear*

Finally, my first attempt at an acetate card! I don't know why I felt so intimidated by these. I think it was probably because I had never seen one face to face and I wasn't sure how you would hide the adhesive.

But Splitcoast Stampers came to my rescue again! They posted a tutorial on acetate cards so I printed it off and went to play.

I am so pleased with how this card turned out! What you can't see is that the inside writing surface layer that I added is crooked, but that's OK... I'm a crooked kinda gal.

I will be making more of these for sure!

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Acetate Sheet (for laser printers); Stampin' Up! Summer Sun and Purely Pomegranate; Classic Crest white
*Ink: White StazOn; Stewart Superior Black Document
*Images: Lizzie Anne Designs Jolies Fleurs; Hero Arts
*Tools: Prismacolor Professional Quality Colored Pencils, Odourless Mineral Spirits, Blending Stumps
