Have you all tried to add some richness to your layout by simply using a few pieces of Clear Scraps Clearly Accent Embellishment? I always love to add different textures and elements to my layout to give a richer and more sophisticated look to it.
In the layout above, I've added two pieces if acrylic dress forms.
Here is a close-up on it.
I've added some pattern papers to it and to dress it up, I've added some crystal swirls. Try adding some acrylic element to your layouts!
For this card, I wanted to try something new on it - a gel medium. It took a long time for it to dry on the acrylic and I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to use over it so the pink is a combination of a few different paints that I played with....but all in all, I love the texture of the gel medium through a misting mask as the main feature of the card!
Hi Clear Scraps friends! Tonya here today with you. I'm here to share another brand new Clear Scraps card from CHA. This card is the Half Scallop Send it Clear Card
I used Scor-Tape to apply the glitter to the sides and then trimmed my paper so that there was strips of the clear acrylic showing between the glitter and the paper. It's a subtle way to show off the clear acrylic. The rest of the front of the card was embellished with hand dyed seam binding, die cuts and a wooden butterfly that was stamped and colored.
This next photo is the inside of the card.

Hello everyone!!! It's me Adora and today I will share with you another "Send It Clear Card" project I made ! Today is the Angel card. I'm not much of a technique scrapper, I am really more of the cut and paste kind :). But I do love to experiments every now and then! So with this project I used Stampendous Pearlized Mica Fragments. As you can see the Angel has been pearlized :)
Note: To protect the rest of the acrylic, I only took out the protective plastic cover on the angel first then lightly smeared Beacon 3 in 1 Glue on the angel and applied the Micah - fragments over it. Cut off the excess Micah fragments on the edge for a smoother finish.
Here is the inside, finishing it with pink paislee paper, 7Gypsies transparency and Sentimental Singles Stamp.

To decorate the bell on this card I simply used a paint brush to throroughly cover the bell with Modge Podge and then while it was still wet I liberally sprinkled it with an iridescant glitter. Instead of using the clear stickers that are provided I simply used my Crop-o-dile to make holes on both sides and tied that card together using two different colors of twine.
Good morning Clear Scraps fans! Leah here with you today to share another beautiful Send it Clear card featuring the Angel design. It is never too early to start making Christmas cards! When I saw this angel design, I knew that I wanted to emboss the angel in gold.
I traced the angel onto pattern paper, cut the angel out, then placed versa mark ink all over and quickly covered her in Stampendous aged gold embossing enamel. I then heat set the embossing enamel, and once cooled, adhered her to the Clear Scraps card.
I used Websters Pages pattern paper and stickers to create my sentiment and design on the inside of the card.
I left plenty of room on the inside panel to hand write a message to the recipient.
I can't wait to send this one out come Christmas time, my Grandmother will love it, as she collects Angels. I hope you found some inspiration today, join us daily for more projects from our design team!
