Acetate Fun!

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all staying dry, here in San Diego it is raining, perfect weather to stay in your craft room and play!

Today I want to share with you a new way to use the Country Color Set of Crystal Lacquer from Sakura Hobby Craft, to create a fun acetate card.
The first thing I did was use the Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug Embossing Folder to emboss a sheet of acetate. The easiest way to emboss acetate is to do it before you score your acetate, and to put the embossing folder in sideways, so you do not need to fold the acetate to make it fit.

Next I scored the embossed sheet at 4 1/4". Make sure when you are scoring that the embossed side is up so that you will have the negative space to put the color lacquer in on the inside.

Next I used the Crystal Color Lacquer Country Color set to color in the embossed spots. The hardest part is to not touch it until it has dried! I kept wanting to pick it up and look through it!

I then cut out two of die cut shapes out of spellbinders Labels Eight. I attached them to the back and the inside of the card, so you will have somewhere to write or stamp your sentiment.

These cards are addicting once you get started making them and they have that 'WOW' factor when people see them! Hope you are staying dry.


  1. LOVE, LOVE this project... great mind think alike. I just did something like this yesterday.. how funny is that..

  2. I had thought about using color lacquer with embossed textures and with acrylic but not with both! Can't wait to try it!

  3. Great project Jennifer! Makes a quite impressive card for sure!
