Hidden snowflake

Have you ever made a card you loved so much yourself you didn't want to give it away? Well I hadn't until now! This is my creation for this weeks challenge at Die Cut Dreams which is 'a hidden snowflake'.



I've never used white Stazon on acetate before and was nervous about making this as the medallion stamp is huge! Here's a close up:



I'm joining in with these challenges:



You can see above my hidden message and snowflake on the back of the medallion stamp. I made the card base out of an old acetate box lid as I didn't have any myself and had this idea for the card in my head. I've had this medallion Stampin' Up stamp for a while and not inked it up and boy am I pleased with the result. I was so worried I'd slip with the ink and it'd be ruined!

Once it dried I went around the edges of the image with a glue pen and sprinkled with glitter - very time consuming! I punched a hole through the centre and attached a gorgeous SU brad through the centre for decoration and to secure the card on the reverse.

The ribbon is from my stash and looped through a Hodge Podge ribbon slider with a little tag hanging off, I used a snowflake stamp and some circle punched to layer up and hung if with some silver elastic thread.

Can't tell you who I've sent it to as I know you read my blog!

  7. STUNNINGLY beautiful Victoria! So elegant; you've certainly made me think twice about trying to make an acetate card, I've been too scared before and if mine turns out half as gorgeous as yours I will be tickled pink!

    TFS!

    I think I've sussed the reason for my invisble pictures... there's a prob with my browser. If I use Internet Explorer, I can see them, but it goes SO slowly!
    A new computer may be called for in the not too distant future! I'd hate to miss any more of your fab creations!
    Happy Christmas Victoria!
