Patterned Acetate Card Bases

Hello. It seems like everywhere I look I see pineapples! I love this growing trend and was immediately drawn to the adorable pineapple image in THIS set. I used it to make these simple cards…

Another fun product I used on these cards is THIS patterned acetate pad. I cut down the 12×12 size to create card bases for something different…

After heat embossing the pineapple image and sentiment with THIS gold embossing powder, I colored in the images using THESE markers. I die-cut the panel along with the colored mats using THIS die and embellished using THESE enamel dots.

Since you can see through the acetate, I adhered the same size square panels behind each one to hide all the adhesive. Also, if you look closely at the yellow striped and yellow polka dot card, I created a fun pattern by scoring the cards a little off the center. This way it creates a fun new pattern instead of lining up the patterns perfectly back to back…

I also used some of THIS foiled cardstock as a mat on the pink striped card. I think it’s my favorite card of the bunch…

I like to use THIS strong adhesive when I’m adhering things down on a slick surface like acetate. 
Thanks for joining me today. I hope this inspires you to try some acetate cards. They are so fun!
