Scalloped edge clear acrylic card - Clear Scraps




It's show and tell once more! This was my favorite card of the bunch. I love that these cards have hinges and can open and shut. Amazing! I added my own sentiments at home to personalize this card for a special someone.

I said it once and I'll say it again! I was truly introduced to the world of quality clear acrylic cards by Clear Scraps last month at the Creating Keepsakes Convention (CKC) Lancaster PA. It was an advanced class in card making the blew my mind! This is one of the card kits they sell in the booth. I bought several card kits to complete at a later date. FYI - the kits don't include the double-sided cardstock.

Here's the inside. We used 3D stemple paint by viva decor to color the vertical borders and Krylon silver paint pen to outline the card. I learned that only adhesives like Beacon 3 in 1 or Zip dry truly work with acrylic cards. If you use anything else it will not adhere for a lifetime. Pearl pens also work very well with this kind of card. I'd definitely take their classes again AND I'm only registering for advanced classes from now on. So worth my time and $$!


This card went to brighten a friend's day so I covered the private message.

Here's what I bought from the booth.  I got several of their kits, 3D stemple paint, window paint and a detailing tip for my glue. Class goers got a free gift. I picked a tag that is very thick and used for home decor. I think I might make a Christmas ornament out of it. I am thinking about joining their kit of the month club!! They make many other items such as mini albums and home decor pieces.
