Card Making Monday #43 - In the Clouds

Good Morning Ya'll this fine Monday! Welcome to another Card Making Monday. This is my first attempt at acetate cards. WOW! What a time consuming effort to line everything up on the inside to mirror the outside so the adhesive doesn't show. But in the end...I LOVE IT! If you'd like to see the tutorial I used hop on over to my tutorial page. You'll find it there.

I used Lili of the Valley Stamps and a sentiment. That makes 2!
For the image, I used was James bear - Umbrella and the sentiment comes from a boys stamp set (Sorry, can't remember which one it was)

I am very excited to share with you my first acetate card.

I cut the clouds using my Cricut and SCAL program and then layered and embossed them with Cricut Swiss Dots Embossing folder 

Here's a close up...I used Staz On Black ink to ink the sentiment on the acetate. I chose the sentiment "Just for You" because it's so versatile. I like to use thissentiment so that I can stamp whatever greeting is needed when the time comes to send a card. It will work for most occasions and you'll have a little stash of cards ready to go.

I flipped the image for the inside of the card by stamping the image first on acetate and then took the acetate and rubbed it onto a piece of white card stock with a brayer. 

Here's the Copics I used

I hope you enjoyed viewing today's card Making Monday.
