All Decked Out

Here is an Acetate Card. My technique club made this card this month and loved it. It's made using CTMH "All Decked Out", the November Stamp of the Month. You can use any type of clear Transparency film that's thick enough to be used as cardstock for the base of the card.

If you search the Internet, you can find Clear Cardstock. I used Over head transparency Film.

Cute acetate sheet in half and fold in half to form a standard A2 card base. Stamp any image onto the front of the acetate using StazOn Ink in any color. I used Opaque White.

The trick to making this card successfully is to start with the very first layer of cardstock and mount it to the front of the acetate. The mount a slightly larger piece directly behind the top piece concealing the adhesive on the top layer. Continue on with the card in this manner. The last piece of paper gets mounted on the back of the card.
