Acetate Happy Birthday!

So, I finally purchased some acetate sheets thinking I'd be able to make a few clear cards this year. But it would of been wise to look at the weight of the acetate sheets before purchasing them!  Oh well........quite I won't be able to make cards with them, but can make a lot of 'windows' here's a window Happy Birthday card I made sometime over the weekend:

I started by stamping a Hero Arts stamp with StazOn on the acetate sheet.  For the background - I wanted to use up some of my glossy paper - so I swiped three Distress Ink pads across and then used a polka dot background stamp on top of that.

I created the window scene and used a Inkadinkado sentiment embossed in white on top.  Definitely something different and something that needs some more practice!

Very cool! I love the glossy, stamped background and the acetate layer.

What a bold and graphic card, Maria! I really like the acetate overlay with the swirl flourish over the polka dots. The embossed sentiment and multi-colored background is wonderful, too.
Sorry.......don't subscribe via email, so don't know if there's any trouble....

Maria this is "clearly" a beautiful card with the incorporation of the acetate. Another variation of dimension that is eye catching!
