Clear & Sheer - Embossed Acetate Eye Candy Thank You Card

This card is for the Day 3 of the Online Card Classes - Clear & Sheer class.  OMG, I love the look of embossed acetate using embossing folders!  They look so delicious!  

This card is very easy to make. The stamping part of this card was simple and the image on the Flower Friend stamp set was fun to stamp.  Running a thick acetate sheet inside the embossing folder (another LifeStyle Crafts Embossing folder I got ages ago) through the BigShot is easier than some heavier card stock.  The hardest part is to adhere the gorgeous acetate sheet onto the card panel.  I used the smallest glue dot, and even that I have to take them apart into even tinier pieces to fit under the centre of each circle pattern on the embossed acetate sheet.  I used Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue to adhere the die cut sentiment "Thank" onto the acetate sheet!

One important thing is that the acetate sheet needs to be thick enough to establish a good impression of the image from the embossing folder.  I tried a thinner one and the image didn't come out crisp enough.

Absolutely love this bright and cheerful look the embossed acetate added to the stamped images!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful and creative day :)
