My card shape today is made from Acetate
which has been sandwiched between
layers of patterned paper.
This is my inspiration piece for
my Butterfly Challenge
I find acetate is normally quite a fiddly thing to use in making cards.
You either have to use as a window within a frame or
attach using brads to the front so that you do not see
any of your fixing tapes.
I found a great tutorial here by Kristina Werner which uses none of these ideas.
Kristina used an actual acetate card base for her card
but I just used a sheet of acetate cut down and scored heavily using my Scor-Pal.
The design papers were a freebie in Papercraft Inspirations magazine
called Vintage Treasures by Jennifer Ellory.

Art Pad Set 19 Cute Cottage Garden.
I used my Xcut rounder for the corners.
Here is the back of the card which shows the whole
of the acetate card with the design paper adhered to the back
which mirrors exactly the inside panel thus hiding all the double sided tapes.
The sentiment is made using Anita's silver peel offs.
Quite difficult to get good photos because of the glare you get
back from the acetate. Don't think you can see me pointing the camera!
