Festive Flurry in Acetate


Oh my goodness I actually used acetate today through choice.  

It's white on white at Less is More with the extra stipulation of Christmas.  

I started with a card base using Shimmer card stock.  I stamped Sassy Salutations and Festive Flurry on a strip of acetate then attached in a split frame.  I stamped one of the snowflakes on spare acetate and fussy cut out and attached with a Dimensional.  A large Basic Rhinestone finishes it off.  The snowflakes were all sprinkled with some Dazzling Diamonds. 

I apologise for the photo folks.  This was the best one after I realised everything was being reflected in the acetate!  It looked like there were smudges and extra ink lines.  You can tell I don't use acetate very much Lol! 

Hope you've had a lovely weekend.  We saw the sun back for a while and boy was it warm!

Take care.  x

What a gorgeous idea, I must try using acetate that way - I have heaps of the stuff and can never seem to think what to do with it

Wow! You used acetate willingly? And fussy cut it! There should be a prize out there for that! Seriously, I love this idea and think it's beautiful! So worth the effort!
