I'm really not all that witty, but since I have a card made with clear acrylic "paper" today, I thought my post title was fitting. LOL :)
I've been admiring all those lovely cards and such made with clear acrylic sheets. I've really wanted to try it so while at CHA last month I picked up a pack of PTI's clear cardstock. A few things I learned are to pay attention to your design and how your adhesive will be adhered and two, take the time to slowly score your card. A lot. And then some more. It took me a while to get a good score so that I could get an even fold on the card. But maybe that's just me.
I think I'll definitely try the acrlyic card thing again. It gives it such a different look. Very cool. For this card, I used the SU! Top Note die and stamps from PTI. Patterned paper is various old stuff - Heidi Swapp and MME. If I had thought the card through before I started running things through my Big Shot, I would have realized I had only one tiny sliver of Heidi Swapp paper left (the large pink polka dots on the front). I then could have used the same thing outside and inside. This way, I used two different pp. Not terrible. Just musings after the fact. Do you ever do that or is it just me?
Here's the inside of the card. Please forgive the glare off the clear sheet. I didn't know how to avoid that. Anyway, back to the card. I made a small pocket that would allow cash or a gift card to be tucked into. This one happens to be going to my niece, who is now 12!
Stamps used: Cupcake Collection, Birthday Basics, and Fancy Flourishes, all from Papertrey Ink.
