Butterfly Acetate Card

I recently saw this technique in a Facebook group and I cannot recall who designed it... otherwise, I would definitely provide credit to that individual. 

This card has an acetate insert that allows it to appear like the butterflies are almost floating. It's such a neat technique! I coloured the butterflies and brushed them with the Clear Shimmer Brush to add some shimmer.

  1. wOW, Alyson, this IS cool. If I hadn't seen the acetate's shadow on the wood planks, I'd have never known it was there. Beautiful work, xoxo

  2. Wow! I was completely stumped how this floating card worked until I re-read the title. Simply gorgeous!
