Festive Friday: Faux Frosted Acrylic

Jun 1, 2018 | Congratulations Cards | 3 comments

Looking for a way to get that acrylic sign look in your card designs?

It’s a trend that’s heating up this summer, and sure to stick around for at least the next year or two – acrylic, acrylic, acrylic! What does it look like? Here’s a sample from Pinterest:

New here? Pixel Points are my way of rewarding this community for sharing, commenting, visiting and purchasing. And, it's not hard to do! Just  and you'll start to collect points!

How can we achieve this look? There’s two choices for base layers in papercrafting – window sheets (acetate, which is like super thin acrylic), or vellum (for a frosted look).

For Festive Friday Challenge #FF0009, I opted for vellum!

Play along at the Festive Friday Challenge - Earn Fest Points for free stuff! Find us @festivefridaychallenge or festivefridaychallenge.com. New challenges every other Friday! #cardchallenge

Using vellum can be a challenge, but when used strategically, it really adds a punch to a project without much else! Today’s project can be completed in just a few short steps. Earn the PDF tutorial by playing at Festive Friday and earning Fest Points that you can redeem for tutorials and other great prizes!

Of course, this project ticks the “die cut” part of the new Festive Friday challenge, and with the somewhat “generic” sentiment and masculine elements and colors, this card could easily be used for Father’s Day too! Looks like this is another “and” example for you 🙂

Festive Friday: Ribbon of Courage

Sweetest Day? Never heard of it!! According to Hallmark.com, “Sweetest Day is an original American holiday not based on any group’s religious tradition. It’s simply a reminder that a thoughtful word, deed or small gift enriches the life of the recipient as well as the person giving it.”

On the CASE: Wishing You Well

Looking for simple & easy for the holidays and beyond? Look no further! For today’s On the CASE, I dove into a stamp set who’s samples caught my eye on my first flip through the Holiday Catalog. Did you know that the Holiday Catalog has more than just holiday-themed stamps? It’s true…
