Christmas Card Using Acetate Sentiment

By Cards

Oh What Fun

It’s almost Christmas time! I’m getting into the spirit of the holidays and wanted to share a holiday card I made. It is a very easy to make and has great detail. I recently discovered acetate embellishment packs at my local craft store. This pack had beautiful vintage style prints on the clear plastic material. To adhere the pieces down I used some liquid glue on just the parts that had print on them (so the glue wouldn’t show through the clear parts). I couldn’t believe how quickly a card could come together using this type of embellishment! How fun!

As I am getting more and more into cardmaking it is becoming clear that I need to invest into some better quality materials to work with. I especially feel the need to invest into some thicker cardstock than I am currently using. These last few weeks of creating have me feeling so inspired!

Experimenting with SCAL2

By Cards


Hi all,

Today I’d like to share a card I made using a software called Sure Cuts A Lot 2 (SCAL2). SCAL really opens a whole new door of images and designing by allowing me to trace drawings as well as design my own images in Illustrator and then cut them on my Cricut.

I wanted to try making a thanksgiving card that wasn’t traditional. I didn’t want to create a simple pumpkin or turkey card, but more of a harvest theme. I found an image online and used SCAL to trace the image. It was a bit time consuming to fit the pieces together like a puzzle but I am happy with the way it turned out.

This was purely experimental as I wanted to know just how detailed I could get with the images I trace or create. Next time I may use less detail – but it was a great learning experience.Thanks for visiting!
