Another Pair of Prickley Pear Cards!

I have a couple of girly cards for you today!! My first card is an acetate shaker card! How is that for mixing techniques up a bit?! I've never seen one before...but why not?! This was actually really fun and quick to make.

I used papers from The Girls' Paperie for my card. My card actually started with the nesties frame, which was *garbage.* I had started to make another card...and that idea stunk so was scrapped. I hated that I had messed up my pretty paper....so decided to frame something with my scrap!!

I distressed the frame with Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I stamped Be My Valentine from the Hearts and Flourishes half sheet from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

I decided to be different and just have one floating heart in my shaker....so I embossed this gorgeous heart from Prickley Pear in some Pink Frost embossing powder. I distressed my heart with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink as well. I attached my frame to acetate and then with foam tape to the front of my card, sandwiching my heart in there! I applied the designer paper to the inside of the front of my card, with hidden glue dots.

For a message, inside of the card there is a coordinating panel...and to hide the adhesive, I attached a chocolate mat to the back of the card.

The rose is a button and the ribbon is vintage seam binding.

And for this card I used the glitter and acetate technique...with a twist! I stamped my dandelion/music stamp on acetate with black Stazon ink. I ran the image through my Xyron and then applied some Art Insititute Glitter to the adhesive. Both stamps are from the Clearly Beautiful Cardinal set from Prickley Pear.

Papers are from The Girls' Paperie, flowers are from Prima, punch is from SU! and butterfly is from Martha Stewart.
