Less is More Week 11

Guidelines this week is to use acetate at Less is More. Mmmmmmmmmm, I knew what I had in mind to do, so started off well - then it all went pear shaped! The frame centre is acetate and I intended to cut an aperture and have the sentiment on the inside of the card - But I put the double sided tape on the wrong side of the sentiment. OK rethink!! I still cut an aperture but stuck the sentiment to the inside front of the card and applied the frame with foam tape to give it a little dimension, lastly I added a butterfly that was printed onto acetate.

Very beautiful Val.
I love the butterfly and the frame.
I never knew you could print on acetate. I'm sure if I tried, it would jam my printer and I'd have to take it to the shop to be repaired. LOL
