Acetate Gatefold Card Using The ATC Assistant Cd

Well i`m not sure I should be telling you things but this sample was done using the new ATC Assistant Cd 

I had 20 minutes left before needing to send my parcel off and this was a last minute thought but just goes to show how you can do quick cards but make them look something special – well I love it !!!!

I copied the image from the acetate selection of this design  on a plain document page and printed – then put the acetate back in the printer starting with the other end so it was blank and went into my settings and put the mirror image on and printed that off

I then cut both pieces out making sure they were the same size and added a 1.5cm tab to each piece – one on the left hand side and the for the mirror image one a tab on the right hand side

I edged the acetate with Sakura gold pentouch – it goes on acetate a dream

I secured the tab on the back of the card and then matted it onto some calligraphy paper printed from the cd

Then I placed that all on a tapestry card base as I love this card

and finished with a ribbon and decoupaged butterfly to match – I used sticky dots to apply these which i don`t normally but didn`t have time for any glue to dry

Picture 1928

The butterfly was attached with a sticky dot onto a small piece of card I punched out – then I added another square of card behind the acetate on the inside to hide the tape to attach that to the card

And here the other side

I have to say i`m so pleased with this card and the cd as it pushed me to think about different ideas – hope you like it

  1. Wow Suzanne! Another stunner! What a super idea. Love the acetate and the butterflies.
    Will have to try this when I get some time.
    Thanks for showing us.


    • That is quite , quite beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

      I posted about gatefold cards this morning and then you have now posted this. We seem to be walking hand in hand over the last week. First the stationery folder, then the Nesties and today the gatefold. I have no idea what I will be up to this week …possibly boxes for a triple fold card and the stationery folder. Actually that IS what I will be doing because it seems I shall be hard at work on the 100 wedding cards from the weekend onwards. Have you posted a tutorial on those?

      Hugs Sandra

  2. What very clever idea Suzanne for such a wonderful card……..and the way you put it ….a quick and easy card! I love it and must have a go myself. Thank you and please may I have some of tour ‘little grey cells’ so that I too could come up with such fabulous ideas!! Lol!!

    Love Sheila xx

  3. Thanks folks
    Sandra it was by accidient today that I posted this but how funny – I haven`t anything on invitiations as such as workshops but wedding cards that you wouldn`t want to do 100 of !!! – maybe send me a message via Yuku if you need any advise and i`ll try and help
    Wedding invites are what I started to do when leaving work before my samples took over
    Take care

  4. Another fantastic card, Suzanne. I love working with acetate and just adore your take on it in this project-you clever girl, you. I can’t wait to see what you’re going to come up with next – your brain must never stop creating.
