This was the card I made for my husband's birthday last week.
He loves single malt whisky and whilst buying him a bottle in a specialist shop I noticed some advertising leaflets/ brochures.
The covers of the leaflets were kraft cardstock so I picked up a couple thinking that they might be nice turned into cards!
As it turned out I didn't use the kraft but did decide to use one of the printed images - a bottle of whisky.

The acetate is by Kanban, bit hard to see but it is printed with a subtle pattern. I cut the whisky image down and mounted it on Kanban card (the card has an identical pattern to the acetate). To get the curve I chopped an inch or so off the card and attached the acetate at the top and bottom. Because of the size difference the acetate then curves around the card. Looking back I should perhaps have scored it first as it would be less stress on the card but it was the first time I'd tried the technique.

The card-blank is 8 inch square and is Papermania.
The die-cut letters are Sizzix Script.
