On a Clear Day

The Timeless Tuesday Challenge at Flourishes this week is to use Acetate on your card. At first I was going to die cut a piece of acetate and use it as an embellishment but then I came across some clear acetate card bases that I forgot I had and decided to use one of them instead. I needed some more masculine birthday cards so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to use one of the fabulous new stamp sets that I won from Flourishes last month. I stamped the image onto the front of the clear card using Black Staz-On and then simply added the cardstock pieces and embellishments. When using clear card bases remember to use cardstock on the inside and outside of the front and back of the card so that you won't see your adhesive.

Supplies: Standard A2 size
Stamps - In Nature, Tag Lines (Flourishes)
Ink - Staz-On Jet Black, Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Paper - Clear Card Base, Kraft CS (CTMH), DP - Now & Then (Teresa Collins), Classic Ivory CS (Flourishes), Black CS
Accessories - Black Hemp (CTMH), Black button


  1. Love your outdoor scene on the clear acetate! Those fishtail banners make for a great touch at the top too. :)

  2. This is a fantastic masculine birthday card! I love the mix of patterns and the nature scene stamped on the acetate looks beautiful--they're even more beautiful when you win them, aren't they ;). I'm so glad you played along with us in the Timeless Tuesday Seeing Clearly challenge!

  3. Wow Connie, this is a wonderful masculine card! Congratulations on your win last month and I see you are already putting your winnings to excellent use! So glad you could play along with us this week for the Timeless Tuesday Challenge! :)

  4. Great masculine card. I've got so many ideas running around in my head using a similar technique.

  5. Gorgeous masculine card Connie! Love the colours and patterns you used. Great use of your new stamp set! Thanks for joining us for our Timeless Tuesday Challenge this week over at Flourishes!


Thanks so much for your kind comments, they always make my day.
