Acetate Card

Acetate Butterfly Card

This is my Design Team Card for "Challenges 4 Everybody"

December 2013

The link to this challenge is at the bottom of this post.

This is my Acetate Card

This is easily achieved by measuring your Acetate Sheet to be 1.5 inches wider than your card front - then score 1/2 inch on each side.

Apply double sided tape on your score lines and apply to one side of your card front first making sure it sits neatly into your card side, then put the other side into your card front and glue firmly. As you have originally allowed 1.5 inches you will still have a .5 inch allowance so it's like a balloon effect on the front of your card - so you can easily put large flowers on your card - with this card though you would have to make a matching box as it will not fit in an envelope.

If you need anything clarified to make this card please ask in the comments section.

Hi to all my visitors and followers - to show my appreciation if you become one of my followers I will most certainly return the favor and join yours!
