New Technique...

I did this card quiet sometime ago.  In fact, it was for Father's Day - so I must apologise for not having any measurements.

I found this great Technique - Acetate & Tissue, over at Splitcoast Stampers.

Base Card - Garden Green Cardstock
Layer 1 - Very Vanilla
Layer 2 - DSP
Layer 3 - Tangerine Tango
Layer 4 - Very Vanilla

Using Snail Adhesive, I adhered the DSP to the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock & then to the Base Card - Garden Green.
I stamped the boat image direct onto the piece of Acetate using Black Staz-On Ink & set aside to dry.

I stamped the tree images onto the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Garden Green Ink.

With the piece of stamped Acetate, I applied Crystal Effects all over the back, ensuring the Effects were covering a large part of the Acetate.  Once this was done, using my Garden Green Re-Inker, I applied a couple of random drops onto the Crystal Effects & moved it around with my finger until I was happy with the look of the coverage. 

At this stage, I added a little of Dazzling Diamonds to give it a little bit of a lift & some sparkle behind the Acetate when finished.

I then added a larger piece of tissue over the whole lot, turned the Acetate over so that the front was now facing me & placed it over the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock & pressed into place.  I trimed the piece to the size I wanted which in this case, was slightly smaller than the Tangerine Tango Piece I was adhering it to.

This whole piece was adhered over the top of the DSP & to the Base Card.

I stamped the greeting onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Tangerine Tango Ink, punched with Oval Punch & adhered to piece of Bashful Blue which had been punched with the Scallop Oval Punch.  I applied this to the card with SU Dimensionals.

The final result for this technique is really stunning & has so much potential.  I must make another card using this technique again.

Stamp Set - Lovey as a Tree, Sali Away, Well Scripted
Ink - Garden Green, Staz-On Black
DSP - Woodland Walk
Punches - Scallop Oval, Large Oval

This is a really great card. I love this technique but haven't produced anything as gorgeous as this. I bet your Dad loved it.
