Acetate Wedding card

Morning everyone,

It's Debbie here with your next instalment of funkiness. We've all been playing with the soon to be released Wedding paper collections and I have to say I never been so inspired by such a fantastic collection.  Good job Anice

I decided to have a go with a piece of crafting material that I've never really tried - Acetate.  I've had some for a few years now and it's the printable type so I decided to challenge myself - argh scarey. 

What was I worrying about, it is so versatile and it was great to venture out of my comfort zone for a change so here's my card with an acetate bubble:
Here's what I printed out and gathered together:
2 sheets were printed out - 1 sheet of acetate with a backing paper printed onto it and a 2nd sheet of paper.
I cut out a section of acetate and scored it on both sides, enough so that it'll wrap around a pice of card and attach with very strong tape. 

Then put the card together.
I know it's alot of pics but I hoped I've inspired you to try something new.It's good to try a new technique or different materials. Hey if I can do it - anyone can!

I'd love to see what you make with any Funkyhand product so we can pop and leave you a comment. So don't be shy and pop your link in Mr Linky! You can also pop onto our Facebook page and post your pics too.

Have a super day and it won't be long until another funkette pops by and shares what she's been making.

Hugs Debbie x


  1. This is a fab card Debbie. I've always been a bit wary of acetate but you have talked me into having a go. Great work as always.

  2. Hello, my name is Angela, was'nt sure how to add a link but l used the l Do Wordbook to create this wedding card. Using pearlescent paper and card,I made the names as individual wordbooks and then glued them to an A5 card. I then added lace to edges of the card.
    Inside had an insert page, which
    was left blank. I then made a matching box, which had an acetate aperture in the lid

    1. Wow Angela, thanks for posting your card up.Can you leave your blog address so I can visit you. Such a beautiful creation I want to see it more closely. If you need a hand linking you can email me at bookwormjohns@yahoo.co.uk too.Hugs Debbie x
