Acetate Christmas Card

I am a firm believer that it is never too early to start making our Christmas cards and this is one I made with acetate to share with the class who meets monthly in my home. I have been wanting to make a card with acetate but had to find the right weight of acetate before I had any success. I created an A2 card of the acetate, stamped the snowy swirls with Unicorn White Memories Pigment Ink and heat set them. I stamped the Christmas sentiment from Heartfelt Creations on green and cut it out with a Nestabilities scalloped circle die. The sentiment circle was attached in the center of the acetate card and framed on the front with a Memory Box snowflake wreath. The back of  the card has another Nesties circle where the personal message could be written. I added some red jewels and gold cord to complete the acetate card. here are a few more photos showing the card standing up and the back. The card is completely clear so the pictures show a grey background that. of course. is not part of the card. The card is much prettier IRL.

I am entering this card in the Completely Christmas challenge and Anything Goes at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge.
