Acetate can add such an interesting element to your card making arsenal. The acetate pages below are layered onto coloured card so that you can see the patterns. The most versatile piece would be the sheet that is on a olive green background. If you notice this one has piano keys, damask, as well as a couple of lines of sheet music, and filmstrip. The piece on the top right corner is all cancelled post marks, and travel icons which would be great for Paris-themed or bon-voyage cards. There are two other sheets below with printed corners. All these sheets mentioned above are $1.95 each. The last sheet on the bottom right has a beautiful white glitter enamel in the shape of lilies. Because of the glitter, this sheet sells for $2.95.

In the card below, Bev has used alcohol inks on the back of the printed acetate to create some lovely blue-purple colour combinations. The die shown below is cut out of black gloss and tucked in the corner under the salutation. Keep in mind that with clear acetate you can colour on the back side with acrylic paints, any permanent inks, or some stencil pastes.
