Hi there everyone! Laura here with you today to share a quick and easy acrylic card!
This card is a quick and easy card but a lot of fun to play with the layers to create
whatever look you'd like! The cover of the card is a piece of on of the Clear Scraps
Acrylic Sheets. It's cut to the usual 4&1/4" by 5&1/2" A2 size card. To make the back
you cut a piece of cardstock or paper (I used a honeycomb patterned paper to stick
with the theme of the card) that is just a half inch wider (4&1/2") so you can create a
little flap to wrap around the front of the card and attach the acrylic front piece to.
This picture shows the clear front panel a little more clearly. I wanted to keep with
the bee theme, so I used the Clear Scraps 6" Spiro Flower stencil. It has a honeycomb
look to it. I used alcohol inks dabbed on over the stencil to create the image on the acrylic.
Then to give it more of a mixed media look, I went back in along all the edges of the
acrylic card front and around the edges of the stenciled image and dabbed on more ink.
It created a fun look that goes well with the honeycomb paper that peeks through from
behind the acrylic layer. Then I just added a strip of the honeycomb paper to the front
of the card, and a few stickers, then finished it off with a twine bow. Cute, sweet and
my favorite part, super simple!
Don't be afraid to play with the acrylic sheets! They are so much fun to use paints,
stencils, inks, stencil pastes, markers, stamping (with staz on ink or similar) and
make for interesting cards, LO's or even home decor projects!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
