The challenge with this card was to use acetate so that the terrarium looks like it's under a glass dome.  Cutting acetate to fit over the cover was next to impossible, especially since the adhesive would show.

The look was finally achieved by cutting the window square from a square frame die I got from My Favorite Things.  After die cutting the  window, I attached a square piece of acetate to the back with Score tape.  After gluing the terrarium to the card front,  I adhered the frame to the card over the terrarium.  Then I cut the card down to a square and added the bow to fnish it off.

I also used this stamp set for a birthday card.  Instead of the plants, I placed a birthday cake slice inside!

I like your terrarium! Acetate can be a real challenge!

I love how you solved the problem. Acetate and adhesive were not made to go together!
