Making acetate cards is not my most favorite card to make, but this is a challenge after all :) I thought I would try heat embossing on acetate to see if it would work. It does, but you can't over heat it and it does curl the acetate just a tad, but you can smooth that out pretty well. I stamped my bg stamp in versa mark and heat embossed with melon mambo powder. I then stamped my image in melon mambo and matted with ww. WW is on the inside of the card as well. TFL!

Well done with the embossing, Mary. I've only tried it on my heatproof acetate which is too thin for a card base. For card bases I have to stick to my very limited range of Brilliance and StazOn inks. Certainly having the clear card stamped adds a lot of interest - and doesn't show the dust so much, LOL. Great work.
