Over at Stampin' Dymonz' Scrap Shack we have a weekly "Christmas Card Club". Trying to stay ahead of the game when it comes to making cards for that time of year. This week the task is to use acetate. I thought I might as well incorporate some of the challenges over here in blogland so, following the sketch over at Midnight Madness #110, this is my card.
The acetate is a panel inserted to make the card square. I used matching vellum on the other side. (HunkyDory) Mounted onto pearlised black CS. Ribbon from stash has "with love at Christmas" peeloffs added. The ends are covered with card candy. The image is from Delicious Doodles, coloured with promarkers and glossy accents on the flame. Edge distressed with Barn Door and Black soot DI. Layered onto dark red and pearlised black. The tiny pearls from Pizzaz aplenty... thanks Terry
This shows the speckled green CS base I used and some gorgeous 2 tone ribbon with gold threaded swirls. If you look at the front it looks green.
The back of the image covered, both to neaten and provide a writing surface for a greeting
You can see the pearls better here and see I added a bit more dimension to the ivy.
A couple of challenges I am entering this into
