A piece of 12x12 inch acetate
A piece of paper for the base (I recommend a piece of 12x12 paper with a soft pattern or a solid color)
Paper or stickers with fun shapes to arrange on the "staircase"
Paper cutter and score board
Scissors (for fussy cutting)
Any embellishments you desire, like gems or ribbon, or die cuts*
* if using die-cut shapes, you will need a die-cut machine
I chose 2 pieces of 12 x 12 paper (a paper for my base, a paper with fun shapes to cut out) and then some solid papers to cut some die cut shapes out of.
I also cut out the topper piece, which sits on top of the Acetate Card. In this case, this paper matches the base card paper. I cut this to 2 x 5 1/2 inches.
I cut the back, sentiment piece. This measures 2 x 5 1/2 inches. As well as a small 1 x 5 1/2 inch piece for the front. This paper also matches the base card paper
I scored the acetate at the halfway point, at 5 1/2 inches. I scored the topper piece at 1 inch, and then I scored the base card piece... scoring it at the following:
2 inches, 4 inches, 5 1/2 inches, 7 inches, and 8 inches. If you accordion fold it, you will create the "staircase"
I attached the topper piece to the top of the acetate and the sentiment piece to the back of my Acetate Card.
At this point, I now have an acetate card with a staircase at the base and a back piece for the sentiment.
I used The Ultimate glue to glue my pieces together. It bonds to nearly everything and is very versatile, also dries completely clear!
What a cute card idea, and it sits up on its own, which makes for a nice decoration!
You'll have to stop by the store to see these cards in person, they are such an inspiration!
