Yet more acetate cards!
Here and here are the other cards I created with these. I went in a different direction this time and backed them with restructructed paper which I created a while back. I really like the look of the random colours behind the acetates so I kept the colour scheme monochromatic. For a textured accent I pulled out my border punch (SU) and created some lacy strips using kraft cardstock and added some stitching with black thread. I love it!! So many possibilities for combining this punch with thread - my head is full of ideas!! I layered the stitched strips to a black strip that was trimmed with decorative scissors, attached that to the acetate with double sided tape and then attached the acetate to the decorative paper using double sided tape behind the strips. I used mini brads to attach the whole element to the card front!! I can see using the little mini brads with the lacy strips as well for creating decorative elements for cards.
