Acetate Flowers

I totally got this idea from Jen Caputo. Is it not brilliant - or what!? Jen made her card for one of the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop challenges - quite a while ago. I am just getting around to re-creating it!!
It is rather easy to create. Stamp the outline of the flower onto acetate and let it dry. Cut it out and add it on top of the solid flower using a dimensional. Then cover the center with a button, like the center of the flower!! I also like the striped bottom panel.
Supplies: Stamps- Remember, Background Basics: Retro, Birthday Basics (all Papertrey Ink); Ink - Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado (all Papertrey Ink), white StazOn; Paper - Select White, Berry Sorbet, Spring Moss (all Papertrey Ink); Other - Berry Sorbet twill (Papertrey Ink), yellow buttons (Hero Arts), acetate, dimensionals.
Don't you wonder what other image you could do with this...I certianly am thinking....mmmmmm, this could be fun!!! :-)
Have a great day!!

What a happy, colorful, beautiful card. Thanks for sharing and showing me what uses I have for those little bits of acetate I have lurking around the craft table.

AS usual, you ROCK! This card is so pretty and cheerful. Gotta try the acetate flower idea...have all the supplies but have never done much with them. Having the button cover the adhesive for the acetate is so perfect.
