Did a Little Shopping

There's nothing like buying some new supplies to get those ideas flowing!! This weekend I got a chance to stop by Cute Stuff and picked up a few new things to play with...I'll be sharing them with you over the next few days. Here's the first thing I made using some cool acetate cards:

I started off with paper from Paper Salon (Blossom: daisies)...I cut out 2 of the flowers, plus I traced and cut out 2 more flowers out of some coordinating paper (make sure you put the papers back-to-back when tracing the flower so the coordinating papers will be facing the right way). Next I taped some ribbons behind the daisies and mounted the whole thing with double stick foam tape (one daisy on the cover of the card, one daisy on the inside). Then I used the coordinating paper daisies to cover the foam and tape on the backside of the daisies. Here's a picture to show you what I'm talking about:

This coordinating paper also provides you with a place to write your message. Stamps used: 5008 (Ladybug With Flower), 5009 Bug With Flower), 5039 (2 Ladybugs) and 2020 (Smile).

So pretty! Love the neat magical effect acetate always gives. Did you use transparency acetate or a special kind just for cards?
