Clear Sympathy Card with Butterflies

Hello crafty friends ...

"And now for something completely different", as the saying goes ...  wink.   It's time for Karen Burniston's August Designer Challenge, with the theme of "WING IT!" - make a card that incorporates any type of wings. This could be a bird, butterfly, bee, fairy, airplane or add wings to something else - the sky's the limit!

I've been wanting to make a clear card for a long time, so that is what I did today, using several different die sets by Karen Burniston and I go over the details for you in my YouTube video below.

The Pattern Plate Flowers is sized to fit perfectly on an A2 sized card, and I cut it from a pretty white pearl card stock. In fact. all of the white on this card is the same white pearl card stock. It gives a subtle shimmer which is just lovely, especially for a sympathy card. 

Layered rectangles come in the new Pop 'n Swap set, the With Sympathy is part of the new release and the butterflies on the front are in the Circle Charm Pop Up die set. I added a couple of those beautiful iridescent butterflies from Studio Katia as well.

Inside is more of the same, with the smaller butterfly from the new Backyard charms. I wrote the sentiment with a fine point marker.

This card easily took as long as making a pop-up but I'm really happy with how it turned out. I am looking forward to making more clear cards in the future!

So beautiful. I was glad to see the use of the clear acetate. I haven't seen any cards made like this and was hoping to get other ideas on how to use it. Thanks for your inspiration.
