Acetate Front Bestie Card

This is our first challenge for this month "Doily and Flowers"

ONLY 1 MORE WEEK TO GET YOUR CARDS DONE FOR THIS CHALLENGE!

This is "My Bestie" Acetate front card, it was a challenge taking the photographs due to the shine on the Acetate. These type of cards are fabulous when you are wanting to add larger embellishments to your card, when I do one of these for an order I always present it in a matching box as it will never go into an envelope because of the bend in the Acetate.

I also have a link to the utube demonstration on how to achieve this look under my card tutorials for Acetate Front Card, it's very easy.
You just measure your front of your card and add on another 1.5 inches to the width, score .5 inches on each side and this will allow a further .5 inch for the bend of the acetate. Crease on your score lines and then using double sided tape adhere this to the sides of your card.

This is a side view to show the bend in the Acetate allowing for heavily embellished cards and also the layers of the decoupage image.
