Dustin Pike - A Piece of Cake
Hi there! Today is Day 3 of my "Dustin Pike Week." This piece of cake is FREE on Dustin Pike's blog and comes either precolored (my fav) or black/white for you Copic lovers out there. The sentiment is also FREE from Paulette over at Create with TLC blog. The polka dots are printed on acetate and came in a clearance paper pack from Stampin' Up! It doesn't show up in the photo but the acetate is really cool.
In response to Sherry's question below: Great question Sherry! Acetate, which is really a thin sheet of clear plastic, has a naturally clingy quality so I didn't see the need to attach it around every edge like I would card stock. Instead I cut the acetate to the exact size of the card base, attached the image and sentiment, then used my ATG to apply adhesive on the back of the acetate under the image/sentiment then applied it to the card base. By doing this the acetate is permanently attached but the adhesive is not visible. I suppose in other applications brads or eyelets would work too.
