This month’s theme is Summer, and I thought it’d be perfect opportunity to create a clear acetate card combining few of our fun summer stamp sets! It reminds me of the clear vinyl beach bag that I carry in the summer. 🙂  I’m featuring our Wave stamp set +Die, Palm Tree stamp set + Dies, and the Mountains stamp set. I had so much fun creating this card and can’t wait to share the process!

Here’s the card!



I started the card by stamping all the layers of the images with my MINI MISTI stamping tool.

Here is the list of The Ton’s Couture Color Dye Inks I used:

When I was done with stamping, I die cut using Waves Coordinating Die, and the Palm Tress Coordinating Dies. I stamped the Mountains twice to stack them for the height, and I fussy cut them out.


I created a top folding A2 sized card base out of sturdy clear acetate. I adhered the wave image on the from of the card. Then, I die cut a blank white wave using the coordinating die and adhered on the top inside to cover up the adhesives as well as create a blank space to write.


Next, I adhered the mountain and Palm Tress images on the card. I stamped the sentiment and the little seagulls in our Noir Dye ink. I also added strip of Glossy fine Silver Adhesive paper on the bottom for added interest. I finished the card by adding few Silver Metallic and the Glass Slippers sequins.



I think acetate cards are fun and different, and hope I was inspired you to give it a try!

That’s all from me today! Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day!

Happy crafting!
