An acetate Christmas card

I have tried something different this week. I thought I would make an acetate front Christmas card. I embossed the snowflakes on the front of the acetate - I must remember next time to be more careful with the heat gun as acetate doesn't seem to like it very much.

The Image is from the greeting farm, I used some glistening snow writer on her outfit i don't know that you can see it very well on here but it looks really good in person :) I coloured her with copics and mounted her on to Silver Miri card.
The Ribbon was wrapped around some pajamas I got for Christmas last year. I knew it would come in usefull :)

Here is a close up of the image
