Acetate Window See-Through Card
Posted on April 12 2022
Hi! It's Lynnea! This card has something unexpected - you can see through those lovely wildflowers! It's such an easy trick to add to a simple card!
I like to make cards that are simple and easy to make, but add something fun! Sometimes that's a bit of shimmer, a pop of color, or a die-cutting trick. Watch my video to see how easy it is to add a see-through element to your card!
I chose a bold rainbow pattern from the One Fine Day 6x6 Paper Pack and added it to a standard A2 card base. I used the Lovely Wildflower Cluster Die to cut through the front of my card leaving a floral shaped hole in my card. I added a piece of acetate to the inside of my card to form a 'bridge' and added the bottom piece of my card to the acetate. I cut multiple pieces of white cardstock with the Lovely Wildflower Cluster Die and stacked them between the two patterned paper pieces for dimension. I have tricks in my video for making the inside of the card look pretty and finished!
I wanted the focus of my card to be on the see-through element, so I reached for my favorite simple sentiment set - the Everyday Sayings Stamp Set. I stamped my sentiment with Raven Hybrid Ink and cut it out with the Everyday Sayings Coordinating Dies and cut an additional shadow as well. I popped them up on my card and that's it! I have a simple card with something special!
