I have been wanting to do a "Floating Card" for a couple years and just  never got around to it until now.

What is a floating card you ask?  It is a card that appears to have a freestanding front and/or images floating in mid-air.  This illusion is created by using something like acetate, PVC sheets, or what some people call "clear cardstock".
