Today I want to share a card that I made using one of the buckle arcylic frames that Clear Scraps have. I also wanted to share how I add the dot embossed design on the acrylic frame that I've been really liking lately.
I decided to go with the Spring theme since we are days away from it.
So onto the process....
First, gather your supplies. NOTE: I create as I go so I've actually added more products on my card that is not in this photo.
So to start with, make your card base. I just make mine from good quality cardstock, folded in half to make an A2 card size.
I used the pattern papers from Pink Paislee to cover the card. The plaid paper is 1/8" smaller than the card base to create the border from the green dot paper.
I ran my acrylic frame through my Cuttlebug die cut machine using the swiss dot embossing folder.
Since the acrylic is clear, I decided to ink the embossed parts plus the edges of the frame with ink to make the design pop out more.
I also added some glitter glue on the edges for some extra shine. Make sure you let this dry compeletely before handling.
I used the inside acrylic piece from the buckle frame pack as a template for the inside cardstock that I will be using for the card sentiment and stamped image.
I cut out the edges with scallop scissor.
Next is to stamp the bunny image onto the top of the yellow cardstock piece.
I added more color to the bunny with Tombow colored markers.
Next, I added a strip of ribbon (from Cosmo Cricket) to the bottom of the card. I also made a bow from the same ribbon that I'll be adding on top of the acrylic frame later on.
Then I added the yellow cardstock block.
Then I spelled out the card sentiment with alphabet stickers from Cosmo Cricket.
Next, I adhered my acrylic frame onto the card, centering the yellow cardstock. I used some Tombow liquid adhesive for it. Then placed a heavy item (in this case an xtra large punch) to make sure that the acrylic adheres to the card.
After that I added the bow on the rigth side of the frame. Then added an orange button (from Cosmo Cricket) with some baker's twine threaded through it.
here's another look at the finished card plus a close up....
Thank you for stopping by the Clear Scraps blog today and I hope you felt inspired with my post.
