Be Inspired #96 - Clearly Creative

Our Cuttlebug Challenge for you this week is to use acetate or acrylic on your card, project, or layout. Don't forget to Cuttlebug it :) I have wanted to create a window card like this for several months and I finally had the chance to try it! I really like how it turned out (can I say that?) I embossed the decorative paper with Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers embossing folder. Here is another view:
And one more at a different angle:
Other supplies:
Signature Studio die cut (quote/sentiment) and decorative paper,
SU card stock, EKSuccess border punch,
paper piercer, acetate, and adhesive.

Easy card to make!
Brief tutorial:
Cut base card 8.5"x 5.5". Score & fold. Cut front and border punch. Also border punch the cut off piece. Prepare inside of card. Carefully place sentiment so that it is just below card front/top flap. Attach 4"x 5.5" piece of acetate to back of the top flap. Attach cut off piece and trim. Decorate front. Voila!

I hope you like this as much as I do. Why not give it a try? Then link it to Cuttlebug Challenge #96 for a chance to win an embossing folder!

That border punch looks fabulous, and I like the way the card folds. Can't wait to try this out.

Love it! This is so elegant! I was thinking about doing this kind of card, but now I'm glad i didn't because yours would have turned out so much better! ;) Inspired to be on a team with you!
