Less is more....acetate

I haven't given myself long before the deadline (again!) so I'll keep this one short.

This is my take on a Less Is More card using acetate

I've kept it really simple, with the acetate attached to the card blank by turning the card with the fold facing the wrong way, scoring a small border on the acetate, then sandwiching the acetate between the 2 layers of card blank, sealing on all 3 sides with double-sided tape.  That way there are no edges to hide, and the acetate becomes the front of the card.  This pic might make it a little clearer (if you'll pardon the pun!)...

The card blank is 5" square and pearlised, though it doesn't really show up in the pictures, I think its from The Works.  Then I've simply added a die-cut (from Papermania?) and tied a ribbon around the acetate front. I might add a sentiment before using the card, but don't think it needs one.
