 Welcome back to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Each week we feature a card or project with instructions and what products were used.

This week, a card with  an acetate panel.

Close up of the sweet Penny Black kitty stamp used.

What I used

Stamps - Penny Black -Daisy Love (40-065)
Sentiment  - PB-Special Wishes (30-229 Clear Stamp set
Paper - Yellow, white, green card stock, green gingham paper
Daisies are a small punch with dots from a
hand held punch in yellow
A piece of Acetate 51/2 inches by 6 inches tent folded
Word Die  is Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two (S5-030)
Corner die on front - Spellbinders Lace Doily Accents (S5-062)

How I did it

From the yellow card stock, I made a card base measuring 51/2 by 12 inches,
folded tent style to create a 51/2 by 6 inch card
Cut a piece of Acetate, or you can use any clear packaging material the same size as
the front of your card.

Decide the layout of your card . 
I cut a piece out of the front of my card about 1 3/4 inches wide.
I then lined up the piece of acetate with the inside of the piece I left at the
top of the card and adhered it in place.

Then, I adhered the bottom piece that was left after I cut out the 1 3/4 inch piece
over the acetate.  I just used a clear tape runner, because I covered the inside
with the gingham paper.

Punched the daisies, glued the circles in the middle.  Across the top, I popped up
five daisies on the top flap that I left on the card.
On the inside, after adhering the gingham paper to all the inside, except the acetate
strip, I centered five more daisies across the gingham so they show through .

Popped up the image on the bottom of the front, added the corners, and adhered
the sentiment label to the inside.

Thanks for stopping by today for a peek.  Have a great  day.  Untill later.....

What a darling PB image, Sue! I admire people who can effectively use acetate - I'm so clumsy, and it always turns out messy. This is a darling card! hugs, de
