Feliz Cumpleanos (SOA Challenge #8 - Card Sketch & Kristina's Color Inspiration #8)

For this card, I decided to combine card sketches (Stampin' Out Alzheimer's #8) and Kristina's Color Inspiration #8 challenge). Wow, they are both #8!

I absolutely loved the acetate
card Nichole Heady created last month! I decided to make an acetate card yesterday. I've never done this before. I was inspired to use a piece of white Hambly Screen Prints overlay I bought at Maker Faire this past weekend. I love it! I cut a 2.5" by 3.5" piece. I also cut 4 pieces of Bashful Blue the same size. The acetate is sandwiched between the cardstock to hide the adhesive and the ribbon. I couldn't sew the card like Nichole's, because I'm having trouble getting the right tension on my machine. I had also never used Brilliance ink on acetate. This site says Brilliance ink will dry on acetate overnight...it did. My only problem was keeping the acetate "clean" from finger smudges and scratches, and getting a photo of the card.

Our colors this week are:


Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, and Whisper White

What a great card! You did a great job of using the acetate. I think I mentioned to you that I bought an entire box of transparencies to use. I only made 2 cards. I love the idea of the rectangles! MFS, Jenn
