Acrylic Christmas

I really do and try and enter the Tiddly Ink challenges as I find the images quirky but cute. But sometimes time is not on my side and everything else takes priority. However, as soon as I saw the current challenge:

Use Acrylic

I knew exactly what I was going to make. And somehow it took me all week to make when in reality it only took about 30 mins to put it all together!

I've used the snowman sentiment image which was a freebie last year but it seems that it is retired as I can't find it either in the Tiddly Inks store or basement. I've layered it onto a random bit of printed card that I found (on the floor as my box is now overflowing!) and added a dotted line of 3d silver paint around the edge.

The acrylic is a sheet of acetate that has gone through the Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder and I've attached it to the card blank. The join is hidden with some eyelash fibres (which look a bit like snow!) and then I've added a silver star charm.

And its another ticked off my list!

I'd also like to enter the following challenges:

Clean and Simple Sunday Challenge: CAS Anything Goes
Ribbon Girls: Christmas and Ribbon
Bling It On: No Patterned Papers
Little Claire's Monthly Challenge: Black and White
Winter Wonderland: Christmas and a charm

  • Image: Tiddly Inks
  • Dies: Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder
  • Everything else: My stash
