J&C Creations - April Blooming Flowers!

Good Morning!
I hope you are all enjoying your Easter Bank Holiday! Today I have a card to share with you that is made from using Acetate. Acetate isn't something that you would normally use for your card blank but I think it looks really clean and effective.
To create your card blank cut a strip of acetate and then fold in half using a bone folder. I have decided to use a patterned acetate but the normal clear acetate looks just as good.


To decorate the acetate I attached everything to the base using Glossy Accents as I found that it would hold everything much better than other adhesives. To make it possible to write inside the card I repeated cutting some cardstock like I did for my main image and stuck it inside directly beneath where the image on the top lays.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Ahhhh....hello spring! Your card makes me smile. It is so pretty. So delicate and such a breath of spring. Love the scalloped oval as your focal point of the cover and the sweet dimensional flowers on either side of the gorgeous flower in the center. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
