Let’s spotlight with Acetate

This week I want to show you how to spotlight with Acetate. This technique is very much the same as the video I showed last week where we used the Acetate Technique to create a background, but on a much smaller scale.

Here you can see I used a circle shape as my spotlight piece. I also used strips of paper that were much smaller. This is a great way to use up any thin scraps of paper you may have hanging around.

Turtley Awesome - Spotlight Acetate


  • I used several different patterns of Paper for this project, six in total. I basically just went on a hunt through my stash of scraps for anything greenish.
  • All of my scraps were cut to measure .25″ in height by 3″ in length.
  • I also used the Turtley Awesome Stamp Set + Thin Cuts from Close To My Heart.
  • And of course a sheet of Close To My Heart Acetate which was cut to .25″ x 3″ strips.
  • I also used a few pieces of Cardstock and some Embellishments.

Now, let’s take a look at how it all comes together to make a stunningly spectacular card!


FUN! And a great way to use up scraps, as mentioned above! Plus, the one thing that I can promise you is this technique can be super addicting. I want to keep making more fabulous things with it but I should also explore other techniques, too, don’t you think?

Happy Crafting my friend! <3
