I did this card quiet sometime ago. In fact, it was for Father’s Day – so I must apologise for not having any measurements.
I found this great Technique – Acetate & Tissue, over at Splitcoast Stampers.
Base Card – Garden Green Cardstock
Layer 1 – Very Vanilla
Layer 2 – DSP
Layer 3 – Tangerine Tango
Layer 4 – Very Vanilla
Using Snail Adhesive, I adhered the DSP to the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock & then to the Base Card – Garden Green.
I stamped the boat image direct onto the piece of Acetate using Black Staz-On Ink & set aside to dry.
I stamped the tree images onto the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Garden Green Ink.
With the piece of stamped Acetate, I applied Crystal Effects all over the back, ensuring the Effects were covering a large part of the Acetate. Once this was done, using my Garden Green Re-Inker, I applied a couple of random drops onto the Crystal Effects & moved it around with my finger until I was happy with the look of the coverage.
At this stage, I added a little of Dazzling Diamonds to give it a little bit of a lift & some sparkle behind the Acetate when finished.
I then added a larger piece of tissue over the whole lot, turned the Acetate over so that the front was now facing me & placed it over the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock & pressed into place. I trimed the piece to the size I wanted which in this case, was slightly smaller than the Tangerine Tango Piece I was adhering it to.
This whole piece was adhered over the top of the DSP & to the Base Card.
I stamped the greeting onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Tangerine Tango Ink, punched with Oval Punch & adhered to piece of Bashful Blue which had been punched with the Scallop Oval Punch. I applied this to the card with SU Dimensionals.
The final result for this technique is really stunning & has so much potential. I must make another card using this technique again.

One thought on “New Technique…”
This is a really great card. I love this technique but haven't produced anything as gorgeous as this. I bet your Dad loved it.
