Acrylic fun -

I had seen on someone's blog once embossed clear cardstock - I decided to see if I could emboss the acrylic that Kim carries at the store. This stuff is thick!! I held my breath to see if it would work and it did!! I was so excited. I made the clear 2-4-6-8 box first - The acrylic is so stiff that it squished the chocolates a little. If I were to make more of these I think I'd make the dimensions a little larger. Then I thought I'd make an acrylic card to go with the notebook I'd made last week. I was so pleased with how it turned out! The swiss dots were perfect with this simple look. I've made transparency cards before but the acrylic is much more sturdy!
