Acetate Window Card

Hello everyone! Today I wanted to share a fun card I created last night (while watching Twilight!!!)
This card was designed around this cute Penny Black image called Cat on the Moon. I used a piece of acetate in the middle so the image looks like it is floating.
The image is stamped on Neenah cardstock and colored with Copics. I popped up the cat image so that I could dangle his tail below the main circle panel.
I colored and cut out the image, framing it with my Spellbinders die. Then I used a larger circle die to cut the opening in the front designer paper.
I used the same die to cut a circle in the card front. I assembled the card by laying a piece of acetate sandwiched between the designer paper and the card base (Island Mist by Prism). The image panel is adhered to the front of the acetate and the scalloped circle is adhered in the inside.

Very easy and a fun effect.

I used the Easy Brad Maker Kit by Chatterbox to create the center detail of the flower. I simply punched the circle with the smallest circle punch in the kit (THERE ARE THREE CIRCLES that come in this kit!!!) and used one of the clear epoxy crystal stickers over top! I added some fun Olive ric rac ribbon along the top to finish off the card.

Most of the products on this card can be found at Stamper's Dream.

Materials used: Stamp-Cat on the Moon (Penny Black); Memento black ink; Neenah cardstock; dp; Island Mist cardstock (Prism); acetate sheet; ric rac (May Arts); Easy Brad Maker Kit (Chatterbox); adhesive gemstones (dollar store); Prima flower; acetate; Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies; Cuttlebug (Provocraft); Copic Markers; dimensionals (SU!); corner rounder punch (Creative Memories).

Thanks for stopping by!
