First post and tutorial of the new year!!!


Here is a card I made for the last finally Friday challenge of 2007. It's a card that made me happy because it is my first acetate and tag star card. I had wanted to try these 2 techniques for quite awhile and finally did!!!

Tutorials......

First..What is an acetate card?? I used a sheet of transparency as my acetate base. It's a little hard to see in the photo, but the card itself is see thru. The basic gray cardstaock is 3 1/2 x 4 the rest of the card is clear plastic. You can stamp on acetate with staz on ink. My white stazon ink is on my first Stampin Up order of the new year so there is not any stamping on this acetate at this time.(next one)

Now the tag star..

I will post a link to great directions on how to make the star base using both tag punches here.

After cutting out my star, I inked the entire image in versamark. I then poured iridescent ice embossing powder on top and heated the star to set the EP. Now the entire star is sparkly!! I then added a square rhinestone brad which allows the star to spin on the card. I did not adhere it to the pomegranate piece.
