Clearly Bananas Card
August 20, 2014
Hi there, Lisa here today to bring you a fun card I created using 4 x 6 pieces cut from 12 x 12 Clear Acrylic Sheet and some fun embellishments from Pretty Little Studio. I love our premade Send it Clear cards but sometimes, I want to be more in control of the finished look, so creating my own card from the Acrylic Sheets is a great option.
To create this card, I simply cut two 4 x 6 panels from the 12 x 12 acrylic sheet to create the base of my card. For the inside of the card, I glued a 4 x 6 journaling card to the backside of the acrylic and then added the tags and die cut to the top of the acrylic.
For the front of the card, I used a premade 4 x 6 overlay from Becky Higgins Project Life collection and sewed it to the front of the acrylic piece to create a pocket. I then added confetti and sequins to the inside of the pocket and sewed it right up. With a Denim needle, my machine had no problem going through the acrylic and the overlay, however I seem to be having some trouble with the tension on my machine so the stitching wasn't as clean as I usually like. I decided I liked the messy look for this card about going bananas and left it as is. I then added some more embellishments and ribbon to the front...Here's a look at the backside of the front of the card when opened.
I then secured the front and the back of the card together with 1" Clear Round Discs at the top to create my hinges. I just love all the dimension in this card! A last look at it...
Thanks for stopping by today!
