Ingredients: an endearing image, a piece of acetate, a sprinkle each of sequins or stars and glitter, one sewing machine set for zig-zag. Oh, and an ATC blank or cardstock cut to 2.5" x 3.5". Also a dymo for the lettering. I also used a French manuscript rubber stamp on the background of the clip art.
Glue your image down on the card.
Sprinkle a pinch each of your stars and glitter onto your image. Cover with acetate. Zig- zag sew around all four sides. Trim down your acetate to the dimensions of the card. Dymo a word and clip apart the letters. Lay them out in a pleasing manner. (Do your heavy sighing away from your work area or the letters will blow away! I had to re-do a couple!) Peel away the backing paper and stick down your letters (the most tedious part of this card). Now shake and alter your glittery ATC to your heart's content!
Note: I created my textured acetate by running a sheet of acetate, loosely covered with celophane shred (like Easter grass), through a hot laminating machine. Those were the days when I volunteered for my son's pre-school (he is now 10 years old!) and laminated projects for the teachers. I have a couple sheets of my experimental acetate left which I use frugally. These two cards were made from one scrap.
