"Clearly Creative" Cuttlebug Challenge

This week the Cuttlebug Design Team was issued a challenge to create something "CLeArLy CrEaTivE"! Here is the project I designed..."Heart U" Card
Designed By: Miss Tracy :)
I love the look of clear cards! This card was created out of clear plastic. These plastic sheets are manufactured by Accucut and can be cut easily by hand or die cut...best of all, it scores easily and embosses beautifully in the Cuttlebug! I used the nested heart Cuttlebug dies to create the various hearts out of the plastic and some fun papers by Fancy Pants. I embossed the larger heart with the Script EF and the smaller heart with the Swiss Dot EF. Some of the hearts, buttons, and flowers are adhered to the front of the card, while others are adhered inside the card. This creates a great layered, dimensional look because the card is clear and you see all of the elements through the front of the card. It's "clearly" a fun way to create!


Follow these simple step-by-step instructions and make your own "clear" card today!
1. Cut your plastic sheet to desired dimensions (sample card is 8x4)
2. Score and fold
3. Cut a 3x7 piece of red cardstock and create scalloped edges using a scollop border punch
4. Center and adhere to the inside of the card
(use a clear adhesive runner or a clear liquid adhesive)
5. Die cut various hearts out of printed papers and scraps of plastic
6. Emboss the plastic hearts in the Cuttlebug embossing folders (I used the Script EF and the Swiss Dot EF on my card)
7. Ink the edges of the various paper hearts in coordinating colors
8. Now the fun part...arrange the plastic and paper hearts in desired postions and adhere. Start with the inside of the card then close card and arrange additional hearts on the front of the card. This will create a layered, dimensional look. (use a clear adhesive...my favorite is zip dry)
9. Stamp the front of the card with special sentiment (you must use StazOn Ink on plastic)
10. Embellish the card with punched paper circles, buttons, and flowers. (I used some black floss in the buttons and I applied Pink Stickles in the centers of the flowers)
11. Punch a hole through the closed card using a Cropadile and secure with a ribbon.
Hope you enjoy this week's challenge! Check out the other DT Clear Creations at http://www.cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com/.

Keep Creating,
Miss Tracy :)
