National Craft Month Day 7

I have been wanting to make a "clear card" for a long time and just never had the chance to.  The reason being is that I haven't found a good brand of acetate thick enough for me to make cards with - at a reasonable price.  Somehow, while looking around my craft room, I saw a sheet of 8.5 x 11 acetate.  I don't know where it came from, but that just prompted me to make a card.

My inspiration for this card is a challenge sketch from Verve.  I have heard about Verve stamps for quite a while, and it was only recently when I gave in and bought some of their products.  The quality is just great and I love all their designs.  I'm looking forward to their release party tomorrow night at SplitcoastStampers and see the new stamps.

First, I adhered the base inside my card, which was cut at the edge with Martha Stewaart Doily Lace Edge Punch.  Then I assembled the other materials in the front, mostly cut with Nestabilities and Wizard dies.  The Verve stamps I used belong to the Fairy Tales and Beautiful You sets, which were wet embossed and handcut.  Then on the inside, I touched up the sentiment with clear AtYou Spica glitter pen.I love this card!
