This week our added extra to the THINGS WITH WINGS  is ACETATE. one of my favourite things to do with acetate is Shaker Cards. A small aperture is made, filled with sparkly things and enclosed with a window of acetate. Take a look

I took a 5" x 5" cream card base and stamped a frame around the edge using Stampin' Up's Vintage Vogue. In the middle was placed the butterfly on 3D foam pads. Around this was placed a double layer frame of 3D foam tape. Some glitter fibres were tipped into the middle. I then took a piece of cream card stock big enough to cover the 3D foam tape and cut a piece from the middle. It was stamped - again using the Vintage Vogue and then a piece of acetate was stuck to the back with double sided tape. I then removed the backing from the 3D foam tape and stuck down the window. I then decorated the rest of the card with flowers stamped using Vintage Vogue.
