Crazy 4 Challenges

This post is for the Crazy 4 Challenges today. The challenge was to use acetate, and it was a challenge indeed! I have never used it or ever bought it before. I went to the tutorials and read them. I found a cover to a report that I had that I believe is acetate. I tried several of the techniques but didnt have all the products I needed as Im in a rural area with no access. So I decided to just cut a small inverted scallop nestibilities window for the snowflake and added a glittered frame to it. I then glued the acetate to the back side and then put some glitter inside and added the snowflake. Next I used the larger inverted circle nestibilities to make another circle. I outlined it with some irridicent liquid glitter and then used my circle cutters to cut a thin frame to put around it. Next I ran the acetate thru the cuttlebug with a snowflake embossing. Glued it to the inside of the circle. I then punched some snowflakes and glitter them. I added a sheer glittery ribbon. I stamped the little snow man and added some snowflakes around him and glittered them up. I gave him just a little bit of color. This I fastened to the inside of the card. It is quite sparkly and with the texture it really looks nice in person. :) As you can see by the close up the embossing on the acetate adds lots of texture and the light plays off of it so it also has some depth to it. Turned out to be fun once I got the hang of it.

LOVE this card! The snowman festured like an ornament is just so creative. PS go to a web site called House of Three. they have great headers and sidebars you can order for inexpensive bling for your blog!
