ACETATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I knew I shouldn't of looked at the Less of More challenge ACETATE what were they thinking. So I had an idea of an acetate panel and one of the reasons I brought the cuttlebug was a demo that I saw embossing acetate.
I used the daisy folder which in hindsight was a bit tiny especially to photo which is way I added a close up pic.
Then I dotted the dots and the flower centres with a glaze pen. I did decorate inside but it wasn't what I called Less is More so this card 2 really.
The daisy is a sixxiz die which MJ had at her crop and when I tried to buy it I found it retired only to discover its in the Stampin Up mini book with a BFF whose a stampin up demo I had no probs buying one. Along with the decorative label punch and matching stamps, did managed to get one of the Woodware sentiments inside it.
Whoops do I spy a touch of ribbon!
Of course in RL it looks much better, you really see how well the acetate is embossed even my DD was impressed.

  3. I'm glad you've given your Cuttlebug a new purpose Debbie... it's probably been waiting to emboss some acetate ever since you bought it!
    That's a great flower and highlighting all those little daisies must have taken you ages.
    Thanks so much for another charming submission!
    See you next time.
