Papertake Weekly No 12 - Clearly Christmas

Here I go again.....doing something new for me; is there nothing I'm scared of?
This is my first acetate card and I'm really pleased with it. My daughter was so impressed with this one that she's given me an order to make 50 acetate cards for her to give out at Christmas (all free to her of course!).

Okay, so the wonderful Katharina has come up with a great sketch for the Papertake Weekly challenge this week, and I'm sorry Katharina but I have taken a bit of a liberty and only used part of your sketch. However, as soon as I saw the layout I knew it was right for my Kanban toppers and some acetate I got in a goody bag.

Here's the card I made:

Items used:
Kanban Naughty and Nice Topper and sentiment (on the front)
Acetate sheet and patterned paper from the DoCrafts goody bag
Computer printed sentiment inside
Deep red ink pad
Celebrate Ribbon (it's actually a beautiful green and gold)

I hope you like it Katharina - even though it only uses part of your sketch.
Thanks for looking

Coming later today:

  • Penny Black seasons - a second card to depict Summer (complete with candy floss and windmill!)
  • Basic Grey challenge
