Clearly Thinking

Today I have my Rogue Redhead Design Team member hat on. 
This is the card I made for my Tuesday post.
Ever since I saw this floral stamp from the Floriculture set I thought about a card made using acetate. The trick to acetate cards is to get all your layers cut to match so that all the adhesive can be hidden.
I have 2 photos for you so that you can take a peak inside.
I stamped the floral stamp with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with copper embossing powder. The sentiment is from the Bits and Pieces set. There are lots of words so you can create almost any simple sentiment you want to go with your cards. This sentiment happens to be one piece so there's nothing difficult here.
Just remember when stamping on acetate take your time, stamp straight down and lift straight up, no slipping and sliding around and give your ink time to dry. It doesn't take that long, you just don't want to smear it.
The paper I used on the inside has some butterflies on it. I could just see them fluttering around these flowers. I also stamped the flourishes on the back of the brown paper that goes on the inside front of the card and on the outside back.
Come on over to Rogue Redhead Design blog and check out what the other design team members have done with these versatile stamp sets.
