Floating Butterfly

I have seen several cards lately that use the clear acetate with a popup to create the illusion of elements floating.  I love how this works with the accordion frame die. 

The technique is very simple.  I cut the die out of acetate 3 times and then patterned paper 6 times.  I removed the center portion of the patterned pieces and adhered them to the clear pieces.  I connected the frames to make the accordion.

To finish I adhered butterflies, flourishes, and flowers throughout the card.   I was able to match up things so the adhesive didn't show but glossy accents is a good option too.

Dies: Sizzix (Tattered flower garlands, Elegant Flourishes, Big Ticket) Spellbinders (butterflies)
Punches: Martha Stewart (butterfly)
