For my card today I used this week’s tutorial on SCS called Acetate smash.


My card  base is created out of Core’dinations cardstock from the Roy G. Biv Super Assortment. It uses a 4 1/2″ x 9″ piece of cardstock folded in half. I paper pierced and sanded the edges.The main panel was cut with Label One Nestabilities. The large layer was cut out of Basic Black cardstock, the smaller one out of Acetate and once out of Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the Acetate with the dotted background from Bountiful Backgrounds in Black Stazon, turned the Acetate around and added Citrus and Pool Acrylic Paint with Dabbers from Adirondack. The White cut out was pressed against the Acetate. The cool thing is, once the Acrylic Paint dries, the layers stick together! The layers were adhered to the black die cut.  I punched out an oval with the large oval punch, trimmed it to match the Label cut and adhered it to the top left. A Filigree brad topped with an Ice Rhinestone brad were centered over that. On the lower half I tied White Satin Ribbon from May Arts.

The frame image is from the stamp set Kindred Spirits, the sentiment from Bountiful Backgrounds. It was stamped in Black Stazon on Whisper White cardstock and cut with Oval Nestabilities. The created a reverse mask, leaving only the center of the image exposed and airbrushed it with Copic Marker YG23. It was layered on a slightly bigger black scallop oval.
