Craftwork Cards Challenge

Morning's time to move on to the next letter in the

A...for Acetate
to enter your card you can either do a direct link to your entry or e-mail your card to
You have until 5th February to enter and the winner will have their card displayed on the blog and win a fabulous prize including some acetate and remember you still have time to enter the R....for Ribbon Challenge.

and I know what you are thinking.....oh no...the dreaded acetate cards

I think I have probably explained how I do acetate cards before...but for any newbies...I use symmetrical shapes that can be placed back to back on the front and inside front of the card...e.g. the border strip and the flowers and that don't have any nasty gluey mess on show

simples.......and you can write your message on the outside back of the card.

Acetate Card....Craftwork Cards
and this is the best quality acetate....wouldn't buy it from anywhere else.

stamped in White Stazon on the acetate
Dotty Flowers...In Circle Message and Card Candy
from Craftwork Cards

The card was quick and easy to make...getting a half decent photo was the hard bit......dull dreich low light weather at the moment ..roll on bright spring mornings but I think we have a way to go yet........well it's back to work as opposed to playing....catch up with you all later.

Edited to add: To answer Sally's question....What is a Haggis?
Haggis is a dish containing sheep's 'pluck' (heartliver and lungs), minced with onionoatmealsuet,spices, and salt, mixed with stock...sounds a bit gross....but it's delicious....looks a bit like a big fat sausage and is traditionally served with neeps (turnips) and tatties (potato)

Fab Card Kath, I do love Craftwork cards so might have to have some of that Acetate.
A Lancashire Lass myself and I love Black Pudding but have also tasted haggis and it quite tasty, and love the neeps and tatties

Beautiful clear card, Kath! Love it in black and white! And that haggis - I'll pass on that one. My husband likes something that may be similar - he calls it liver pudding.

Kat said...

Lovely card Kath. I've never tried an acetate card yet. Might have a go. Haven't tried the ribbon one because I don't have any Craftwork Cards ribbon. I ordered some but think I've maybe left it a bit late!

Gorgeous card, the effect with the acetate.
Also am a fan of haggis myself....but prefer not to think about what it's made from!

Tatanky said...

Great card ! I would like to give it a try to acetate looks really good

Lynda said...

Lovely acetate card Kath and you really do make it look so simple - your tips have been taken on board. I've had some real nightmares making them in the past - glue everywhere - and more on me than on the card!

Love Lynda xxx

Wow, gorgeous card, Kath!! Love your technique with the acetate. Thanks for linking up for my blog candy. Good to know the ingredients in Haggis, I'm sure it's an acquired taste.
Blessings to you!

Kath, this is simply gorgeous. Never tried an acetate card,someday, maybe. As for the Haggis, Scottish maybe but not for me. All the more for my hungry chaps.

Marion said...

Beautiful card Kath. I'm not brave enough to work with acetate.
