Inspiration: Acetate Easel Card

Good morning, today I want to share a little inspiration with you to make an acetate easel card. 
 Basically I made my easel card and then where I wanted to put my acetate I removed the cardstock.  
To spruce the acetate up a little I added some stamping using staz on ink.
Added some cutouts and there you have a pretty acetate easel card.

Thanks for stopping by
