Cuttlebug Be Inspired #19

Cuttlebug Be Inspired #19 challenges us to use acetate in our project. I decided I wanted to use my new "Build-A-Flower" set but, I have to admit, this card took me forever to make. Each petal of the flower has to be handled separately.... cut, then embossed... which means I did this 15 times (5 petals x 3 layers each). I'm not sure you can actually see the embossed acetate layer in the photos but it is really there (the top layer of each petal).

Besides the Build-A-Flower set, I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder as well as a border from the With Love embossing set. The DP is The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby and the CS is Bazzill. I also used the Martha Stewart punch Lattice Arch and "thinking of you" is Stampendous.

Have a great day. Hope you come back again.

Cheers, Judi
