I Miss You Card

This card is another of my project for Clear Scraps. I’ve used Clear Scraps Acrylic sheets to create this card. I love the versatility of these acrylic sheets. You can customize them into any shape and sizes. Here's a link to the product.

Here are the steps to this card.
1) Cut out a piece of Clear Scraps acrylic sheet for the base of the card. This card measures about 6" x 7.5 "
2) Use the "Masking using Acrylic Paints on Acrylics" technique to create the masked borders on the left of the card.
3) Cut out a scallop edge rectangular piece from a pattern paper and ink the edges using distress ink. Paste it on the upper half of the card. Doodle some stitches on it using a black pen such as Zig Writer.
4) Use the remaining of the same Clear Scraps acrylic sheet, cut out a shape small piece from it. I've used a Teresa Collins journaling tag to trace the shape onto the acrylic sheet before cutting it out. Use some EK Success Zig Painty to add some colours to it by outlining the edges of this piece. I've sued some paper doiley to create the ruffles on it.
5) Use the small shape piece above to trace it onto a pink card stock and a slightly bigger version of the shape on a green card stock as a mat. Cut them out and ink the edges using distress ink. Paste both pieces together and place it slightly overlapping the rectangular pattern paper on the card.
6) Punch some holes and add some eyelets to the card for attaching the small acrylic piece to the card in the middle. I've used a string to secure it in place.
7) The "I Miss You" word are actually a die cut piece from a good friend of mine.
8) I've used the "Circle Flowers" technique to create the flowers at the bottom of the card.
9) Lastly, finish the card off by attaching a strip of Magic Mesh and rick rack at the bottom border of the card.

There are so many ways you can use these acrylic sheets. You can even create a mini album using it. This is definitely a must have for all acrylic lovers!
