Tall Trees Acetate Domed Card

It felt like Christmas this morning because my eagerly anticipated order of 5 (yes I said 5.........) stamp sheets arrived from Graphicus by courier. Then another two Joanna Sheen stamp sheets arrived so I have spent all morning mounting the sheets on EZ Mount, cutting out the individual stamps, laminating the illustrated sheets etc etc - boy are my hands sore!!!! LOL But not sore enough to stop me having a go at a card that was shown in the Graphicus Guild Newsletter using acetate domed over an image. It looked really effective so here's my attempt.

I have used an alcohol inked background on glossy cardstock and stamped the main image several times across the card using Staz-On in Timber Brown and Olive Green. I then stamped a separate image of the trees on a spare piece of the inked background. I then took a piece of acetate and swiped it with an antistatic bag and stamped the same image in the Timber Brown ink. The acetate is then scored down the side and attached to the back of the single image with DST (red liner tape)so you get the domed effect. This was then matted onto bronze mirri card, placed on the background image of the trees and then onto the main A5 top-folded card to which I had adhered some Graphicus paper. An organza ribbon across the top and a greeting and block from the Damask Blocks and Loving Sentiments stamp plates, again from Graphicus.

I was quite pleased with the way this has turned out and will be using this design again.


  1. Well done and hopefully the stronger DST will hold yours together - I'll try another one sometime.

  2. Lovely card Karen...and so many new goodies to play lucky girl.
