Did you notice the new design acetate in the holiday catalog? It is the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate on page 33 of the Holiday catalog. They are so much fun to create with and today I share how you can add color to it.
I have a video below or you can view on my YouTube Channel. In the video I share tips to die cut shape out of the acetate and how to add color.
What to do before using the Mercury Glass Acetate
It is a film on one side the acetate that need to be remove. To remover the film it can be a little tricky but I share tips in the video. If you start in a corner it is much easier. My best way to share and show you how to remove it, it was in action so in the video plus I have many other tip in the video. It is worth taking the time to watch it, that is if you plan on using these sheet.
They come in 2 different print. Each pack include 4 12 x 12 sheet, 2 of each print.
This card is so simple with the Pressed Petals Specialty paper. With this beautiful paper not much to add to finish the card. I added the tow lovely glass that I die cut with the Sip & Celebrate Dies

The back of the champagne glass I color the top portion with the So Saffron dark blends.
all the stamping on this card I use Coastal Cabana ink. Very quick and simple.
Now that you seen both card using the glasses with the mercury accent don’t think it just for glasses. The acetare make a lovely background for all occasion card.
How to adhere the acetate
My best advice to adhere these mercury acetate is with glue dots. Just apply the glue dots on the silver part and it will not show in the front.
I didn’t try any other adhesive then the glue dots. If you ask me if this or that work, I don’t have a answer for you because I didn’t try any other product but the glue dots. After trying the glue dots, I didn’t have the need to try any other product. The dots did the job and it is quick.
