I was inspired by the card designed by Krista Tracy on p.78 of the September, 2011 Cards magazine. I loved the colors and CAS design of her card. I used Baja Breeze, Basic Black, and Whisper White. I have saved a lot of the acrylic packaging from Cricut carts, embossing folders, etc so I have tons to use up. After several attempts I finally found the perfect Big Shot sandwich for embssing acrylic in a folder. Use the Multipurpose platform with NO tabs, clear cutting pad, embossing folder with acrylic in it, and clear cutting pad. It is perfect. I used the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die (p.222 IB&C $21.95 item#114507). I think at one point I cut 6 or 7 at a time.. less cranking! I embossed the Baja Breeze with the Perfect Polka Dots folder (p.219 IB&C $7.95 item# 117335). I then embossed the butterflies after I cut them out in te Elegant Lines embossing folder (p.219 $7.95 item# 119277).
