Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge 19: Emboss Acetate BONUS

Hi girls!! Can you believe it's Wednesday already? I was really excited about our challenge this week over at The Cuttlebug Challenge blog. Embossing acetate has been on my "want to try" list. I wanted to make something that could be a gift/decor item and am totally in love with what I came up with!
I combined my Cuttlebug Challenge with this weeks Flutter By challenge where we were to use blues and purples in our card.

I cut my acetate down to fit in my folder and then ran it through using the Leafy Branch folder. I used a Baja Breeze scrap stamped with some text in Baja Breeze and some purple patterned paper from a DCWV mat stack to punch out some butterflies. I bent up the wings and placed them on my plaque using glue dots and accenting with pearls. The bottom trim was created with my Stampin Up scallop punch and then accented with pearls as well.

Here's a shot of it hanging on my wall:


I punched two holes in the top with my CropADile and set some eyelets in for reinforcement. The ribbon is actually some vintage seam binding I picked up at an estate sale.


Be sure to visit The Cuttlebug Challenge blog to see the rest of the design team cards and then visit them to leave them some love. We'd love to have you participate as well, so use the Mr Linky widget on the blog to let us know where to view your card!

And don't forget about the rest of the FlutterBy girls either! Their links are over in my sidebar and I know they'd be thrilled to have you stop by for a visit!!
