Acrylic Birthday Card

Here is a card that I have made for my niece. I have wanted to make an acrylic card for some time, but actually this is acetate and so not as sustantial as I would like, and so I added the strip of thick paper/ light card down the middle.

This is double sided paper/card and so (as you will see form the second picture) I have made use of showing the other side of the paper through the acrylic. I used machine zig zag stitch to keep the papers in place and I also sewed the ribbons and flowers in place gluing a button over the top.

The other reason for making this card was that it's for the Arty Girlz Challenge Blog whose challenge (No. 69) this week is "Transparent".

I love acetate/acrylic cards, I made a few as Christmas cards. Your card is really beautiful - I hadn't thought of stitching much easier than trying to hide the glue dots :)
