Pixie Powders on Acetate with Lavish Leaves

Following on from Phill’s popular last post, here is another card made using Pixie Powders on Acetate.  This time we have used Phill’s Lavish Leaves Stamp Collection and Sue Wilson Classic Adorned Hexagon Dies.

All our sample cards have been made by crafters at our workshops.  I am sure you agree, they did a brilliant job.

It doesn’t matter what colour Pixie Powders you choose, they’re all gorgeous.  We just love this technique! 🙂

This card is a DL Easel card made by cutting an 8×8 card blank in half.  All the Pixie Acetate pieces have been made from an A5 piece of Heat Resistant Acetate, meaning you get a lot of card for your products!

We have used the smaller hexagons from this stunning die set to create the focal point and little stopper.

TIPS

  • When you cut out the Pixie Acetate pieces make sure you stick the hexagon pieces right to the bottom of the A5 Acetate sheet.  This will ensure you have a good size strip for the bottom layer.
  • Don’t use too much glue when sticking down the Pixie Acetate pieces and only glue the edges.  It will grab the tissue paper quickly.

Remember, we are more than happy for you to replicate our cards in your own style!

Happy Crafting!

Signature!

  1. Hi Karen, can you please explain how the easel card is made? I read the bit about it’s an 8″ x 8″ card – but then what do I do – I’ve been sat looking at this piece of card now for a while and can’t figure it out. Sorry if it’s a silly question.

    Great work xx

    1. Of course. It’s never a silly question if you need to know the answer! 😁

      Place your 8×8 card so the opening is at the bottom and crease at top. Then measure half way along the top crease and the bottom and mark. Draw a line if wish or just use the marks to cut the card blank in half. This gives you the base card for then DL. I normally cut down the card base so it measures 10 cm wide as this makes it easier to work out the layers after! So you end up with a card blank that is 10 cm wide.

      Fold the top layer of the card in half /down to meet the middle and crease with a bone folder and this creates the easel shape. You also need another single piece of card that measures the same size to act as the base layer for the card.

      I will add some photos of the exact instructions after Xmas!

      Hope this helps – Karen
