Using Embossed Acrylic Sheet In Two Ways
August 31, 2020
Hello hello hello! Helen is here... Today I would like to how you can use embossed Clear Scraps Acrylic Sheet on cards in two ways.
These Acrylic Sheets are amazing and they come in 12 x 12 size which are perfect for all kind of projects that you can think of. You can cut them, emboss them, stamp on them, shape them, and more! And nn my cards today, I use the embossing technique.
First, I cut the acrylic sheet into 4.25" x 5.5" with my paper trimmer. I run the blade 3 times to make sure it cut through.
I place each piece of the acrylic sheet in between the embossing folder and I run it through my Gemini Junior machine as I usually embossing paper.
If you would like to watch how it's done, go to Clear Scraps YouTube Video here.
On my first card, I added some alcohol inks on the embossed acrylic sheet. I also use alcohol ink blending solution and straw to move the ink around the surface.
When the alcohol inks were mostly dry and the surface was a little bit tacky, I added some black and gold foil sheets on it.
I added some permanent dries-clear adhesive glue around the edges of the finished acrylic sheet background and then I added it directly on a white card. I held it down with a heavy book until the glue dried.
I added the die cut word on top of the acrylic background with the same adhesive glue.
For the second card, I made a shaker card. I used the embossing and frost technique by following the steps in the video tutorial from Susan Frase, Clear Scraps. I don't have the electric sanding machine like hers, but I used a simple craft sanding block on my card.
After sanding the embossed acrylic sheet, I added the die-cut rectangle frame on top of it using double-sided tape. Then, I trimmed the extra acrylic sheet with scissors.
I trimmed some 3D foam tape and added them around the edges of the back of the embossed acrylic sheet.
I added some sequins mix on the card (in the middle of it). And then I added the embossed acrylic wit 3D foam tape on the card.
I die cut the word sentiment out of black cardstock and I added them oh the card with dries-clear permanent adhesive glue.
I hope these two cards give you more ideas how to create with Clear Scraps Acrylic Sheet. These techniques are fun to try!
Thank you so much for stopping by... Have wonderful day!
