Stamping Technique- Acetate Window Card

I want to share a spring card with you today. I'm so ready for the warmer weather. Winter lasts way too long here in western Pennsylvania.

This is what I call an acetate window card. The acetate functions as a window to the inside of the card.

I stamped the greeting in stazon black ink, which adheres nicely to the acetate and dries quickly.

The stamp set that I used is my favorite flower set in the Stampin' Up! 2015-2016 annual catalog, Flower Patch.

To make this window, you'll need to cut a piece of window sheet (acetate)  4 1/4" x 2 1/2". Cut the front flap of the card off at 2 1/2". Keep the left over piece and cut it into a 1" x 4 1/4" piece to use on the bottom part of the window sheet.

Here's a photo of the inside of the card. I attached the window sheet with snail adhesive.

The colors are crumb cake and whisper white cardstock along with Sweet li'l Things designer paper.  Ink colors are soft sky, so saffron, mint macaron, and watermelon wonder.

I love the unique look of acetate window cards. I hope you'll give it a try and put your own spin on it.

Until next time..

Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
