An Experiment in Acetate
Not entirely successful - I didn't like the edges which is why I bound them with ribbon.
I've had the Spellbinders Persian Motifs and Accents™ for a while and wanted to play. I also wanted to try out embossing with acetate. I probably shouldn't have been so mean with the acetate and allowed a margin to fold behind the backing card.
I embossed the largest of the motifs onto the acetate (didn't cut it - just used the motif as an embossing stencil). In the centre I put a smaller motif for my greeting and cut the long accent from the same card.
I trimmed the long strip accent to fit the top of the acetate. The acetate fixes to the card with double sided tape stuck behind the shapes and a line across the bottom where I was going to put ribbon anyway.
Binding up the sides hides the edges - I think next time I will either allow a margin to tuck under or punch a decorative edge to the acetate.
