I was so excited to try my hand with my very first project from Clear Scraps!  I decided on the "Send it Clear Heart" Card and paired it up with Authentique's "Lovely" Collection
I first started by tracing and trimming the card shape onto
 the patterned paperand trimming out.
 I decided to machine stitch this to the 
actual acrylic card, but Glue Dots can be used as well.  

Next, I traced and cut the shape of the red heart, which are
 the actual insertion parts of the card.  I used one of the punch-out
 pieces from the "Lovely" paper-crafting kit to act as a focal point.

To the inside of the card I simply used two stickers from the
"Lovely" Details Sticker Sheet.  You can stamp on the acrylic
 sheets with a Staz-On ink or use a permanent marker.

Here is a look at how the bottom portion of the card looks.
You can see that I also used a pretty lace (by May Arts) and
 topped it with a bit of the sticker border from the  
"Lovely" Details Sticker Sheet.
Just add a bit of fabric glue to the back of your sticker
before applying to any type of fabric or ribbon.

And a peek at the top portion of the card.
After distressing the sticker with a bit of walnut ink,
I attached it to the acrylic card with foam dots.  A small
piece of one of the sticker frames was added to the top.

The card kit contains four round seals for attaching the
 front pagesto the back page with, as well as
 a cute clear envelope!

I have to admit...I have never worked with anything that Clear Scraps.  I know...what was I thinking?  I think I was intimidated by the "clear" thing.  Now, I am so glad I did because I have more of their product in my stash and I love how my project turned out.  My project was originally suppose to be a card, but it turned into something else.



Well...it's kind of a picture holder thingy...lol.  I guess it can be used as a card :)




So, to dress up this blank card, I added some paint around the edges of the acrylic card and inked my patterned paper.  I simply glued the pieces of paper where I wanted them.  It was easier than I thought and not so intimidating.
