~Not All Cards Have To Be Folded...Right?! haha~

Good morning my crafty friends!

I missed blogging yesterday because I spent the day
Saturday out with friends and watching Black Swan which
was fantastic! I love horror movies, movies with suspense and movies
with a Hitchcock feel and I was totally wowed! It was a lovely day.

Ok back to crafting right? :)
I made this card using the Love in Paris Tally Scrapper Kit
for February and I love that it has a sheet of acrylic in it!
Everything except the buttons were from the kit....
This is the back for writing.
You know it is RARE that I say I LOVE one of my cards
but I genuinely love this card, it's so funky~
The acrylic is from Clear Scraps of course...and I love the acrylic
from Clear Scraps, it makes me smile ♥
Oh and I used my Glue Arts Perma Tac on the card too.
I was testing it out on the acrylic with paper and it worked perfectly!
I had trouble with other glues burning the acrylic and
also I lost 10 acrylic projects alone last year from yellowing and cracking
but this Perma Tac worked, so I might have to try it some more.

Ok I am off to finish projects and hit the Fed Ex office!!
Have a beautiful Monday everyone!
OHHHH this week I have a Cricut Cartridge GIVEAWAY coming up
so please stay tuned! WOOHOO!!!!!

That card rocks! I love it :)

Lori said...

I just LOVE this card - don't you love the effect you get with layering on both sides of the acrylic?! BTW, I have also had success using Liquid Glass/Glossy Accents (same product, different companies) as an adhesive with acrylic. Haven't seen any yellowing or cracking.
