Acrylic Card Tutorial
February 27, 2018
Hello! Jennifer here today to share acrylic cards along with a process video tutorial! Did you know you can purchase 12x12 Acrylic Sheets from Clear Scraps? Acrylic sheets can be used as backgrounds for layouts, cut to create extra pages in mini albums, or for cards! For both of my cards the acrylic is cut to approximately 4x5 inches.
All Clear Scraps Acrylic has a protective film on both sides so be sure to remove before stamping or painting! Using Staz On ink in black, I stamped my images on the front of the acrylic. The ink will dry relatively fast but you do have to be careful to not smudge your image. Any mistakes can be removed with a non-acetone fingernail polish remover! Then you are ready to re-stamp!
Once your my ink was dry, I turned over my acrylic and painted the images with my Zig Paint Pens! These are great to use on any non-porous surface like acrylic but you can also use them on chipboard or wood!
I cut my cardstock to have an extra half inch at the top or side (depending on the orientation of my card). I then scored and folded the cardstock and used Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Adhesive to adhere my acrylic piece. A solvent based adhesive is your best bet because it will "adhere" to the acrylic as well as dry quickly!
Below is my video tutorial explaining the steps I took to color the acrylic!
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope this inspires you to create with some Clear Scraps acrylic! Have a wonderful day!
