Inspired by Stamping #45

Hi everyone!

When I saw the colour challenge at Inspired by Stamping, I just knew I wanted to make a card and try a brand new technique from my Online Card Classes.

As this is my first attempt at using acetate on a card, I got it all a bit messy with glue etc. Oh well - try, try again. But seeing this was my first attempt and it took me FOREVER to make, I must post it.

I started with Very Vanilla cardstock and decided to use my scalloped circle dies from Spellbinder. I used a medium size die to first cut out a portion of the front of the card. I then used two dies to create the 'outline' and used the bigger die to create the acetate window. 
I embossed the card with my Vintage Wallpaper folder.

The sentiment is from my Fancy Sentiments set (Inspired by Stamping) and I have used the Victorian Lace and flowers that are also from Inspired by Stamping.

Here is the colour inspiration -


I don't have anything 'heart-like' in my stash!! I must remedy that. But I took inspiration from the colours and the theme of love. 

Thanks so much for looking xx
