Wonderful Birthday - Acetate

After days of thought about this sketch challenge with a stripe theme, I ended up tearing apart my first card and making another. The only element that made the cut was the piece of striped acetate. This resulted in my having to scramble to get my card made for Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #375. But I like the new card so much more!

I cut a panel of striped acetate on the diagonal and inset it into a white card base. I actually made two card bases and adhered them to both sides of the acetate. I knew the card would need strength and I didn't want the raw edges of the acetate to show. Because I cut the striped material on the diagonal from one continuous piece, notice that when the card base is folded, it is possible to see the striped acetate creating a trellis look when it's closed.

The patterned papers were adhered and the flowers, which were fussy cut from the same paper, were enhanced using Copic markers and adhered with foam tape. Clear Wink of Stella was also added to the flowers. A simple sentiment was stamped and adhered and a few droplets were added. The inside of the card was decorated with coordinating paper trim. Although my card is not identical to the sketch it is possible to recognize the sketch and I also followed the stripe theme.

I invite you to come by and join the challenge fun at Try Stampin' on Tuesday #375!
