Less Is More Challenge ~ Acetate

This is my extremely "simple" card for the Less Is More Challenge using "acetate"......the hardest part for me was to keep my fingerprints off the acetate, and how in the heck to attach it to the cardstock......I finally used my tim Holtz tiny attacher...everything else I tried showed...the acetate I used was a pre-printed piece from SU that I have had in my "stash" for about a year...time to pull it out...hmm??
I had wanted to stamp a sentiment, but should of done that before I adhered the acetate...so this card can be used for anything I need at the time...sometimes those kind of cards are great to have around when you need a quick card..will be back tomorrow with more.....have a nice day!!!

An easy way of attaching acetate so that the join is unseen is to do as I and several other LIMettes have done and that is to create a flap from the back of the card around to the front which the acetate can be tucked behind and adhered with DST. A decorative border often makes this look like a design feature rather than a means to get your acetate attached!
This is a super card however, I love that image on the acetate!
Thanks for joining us this time!

Super card! I had problems attaching the acetate too and had to add a cut out square of cardstock over the back of it.

So simple and elegant. I love the white on this soft green. I've not used acetate on any of my cards, but this makes me want to. Really pretty! Best, Curt

Super card, that image looks FAB on the acetate
Glue pens work great for attaching acetate to card, but obviously the best way is to conceal it!
Great job
Have a good week
