Greenhouse Pottered Plants.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone Pam here today..another Male/female card today.

IMG_3613-crop

Card with an acetate window..I must confess I make my cards up as I go along..Had an idea for this card .. I wanted to use  Acetate as a window with Poppystamp "Green house Potted Plants Sidekick frame and stencil set. also I wanted a large card, in the UK we tend to make larger cards than you ladies in the US..Sorry before I start as this tutorial is picture heavy!!!

I have used UK size A3 card as I wanted a large card using this die set.. 12"x 8" you can use A4 card, but you`ll need to join together on the wrong side, or you`ll see the join inside your card.

This is how the card looks and a piece of Acetate 6"x 8".

You will need 2 cut and coloured up.

Place one as shown in the open window, of your folded card..apply wet (pva) glue on the wrong side.

Finished..should look like mine adhered to the back of your card.

You will need strong doubled sided red tape, to hold your acetate in place, put along the lines shown... remove the backing  to the tape and leave your acetate as is shown in the picture, then carefully fold front of your card on top..

Adhere using strong double sided your second coloured Green house die cut..to the front opening as shown and this will be lined up perfect to the back one.  Finished ready to decorate your card front as you wish.

Sentiment has been added to the inside of the card.I double stamped Wishes and die cut the Best. Foliage and Birds came from the Greenhouse set..Swaying Birch tree and Whittle Cat .. Another take on this card design..decorate the inside as an outside scene  ..up to you but hope you`ll have ago. this card has no dimension! so flat for posting . 

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.
