Be Inspired #19
This is my card for this week's Cuttlebug Challenge Be Inspired #19. The challenge was to emboss acetate - easy and I love the outcome. I wish my reason for the card weren't a sad one...a dear friend, Audie, passed away this week, and I am sending this card to her husband, Ed. He will know I put a lot of love and prayers into it. I made the card from kraft paper, embossed the acetate with the Stylized Flowers folder, and colored the back side with Sharpie markers. I attached the acetate on the left edge with ATG tape. The cathedral trim is made with a Martha Stewart punch. The bottom edge was trimmed with pinking shears. The words were computer generated. I embossed the image on the left, and colored it with LePlume pens, and added it to the top of the card with dimensionals. The sheer ribbon is from Michael's. The pearls add a touch of sweet elegance, and anchor the message. Inking is with chalk inks. I can't wait to see what you do with embossed acetate!!!
