April Craftmad Card Swap - Acetate

Our April Swap at Craftmad was all about acetate.  Visit our Pinterest Album to see what everyone else came up with.  

I decided to make a magic slider card, it's been years since I have made one.  Now I remember why, although I enjoy the whole making and creating, I just don't feel the card is quite finished and wasn't sure what else I could do.  Anyways, it was fun.  I stamped the pink card with Stampin Up - Creative Elements flourish.  The flower image is also from the same set.  I followed this tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers.  I added the little flower and sentiment to the bottom corner as I thought it was too plain without it.  For some reason I used a pice of scrap white paper which had the gold spritz on it from the inner tag.  I think card stock would have looked better.

This is the slider as it's being pulled out.  Sadly I was over zealous when deleting unwanted photos and do not have a photo of the entire image and sentiment. Grrrrr.   So the pull out tag, I coloured the image with my copics, spritz with gold, stamped a sentiment from the Creative Elements set which I stamped on an angle….grrr again. :-)  Added a butterfly in the hope that everyone's eye is drawn to that and don't notice the slant of the sentiment.  I will ask my swap partner for a photo when she receives it then update my post.

I found a card on Pinterest which I had to try - original card at Mel's Card Corner.
A fun card to put together and I love the end result.  I have the same patterned paper on the inside to cover up the tape which is holding the card stock in place on the acetate.  Actually, I used overhead projector sheets which I claimed from the local school as they were going to toss a box full as overhead projectors are a thing of the past. 

Wishing you a fantastic day full of smiles.
