Welcome back to the next Festive Friday Challenge! Here's the inspiration photo:
Lots of silver and gold with a couple of red touches! I chose to focus on that one clear glass ornament with the gold snowflake on it.
Making this card is so, so easy, but I think that the acetate window gives it a wow factor.
The trickiest bit is cutting the circle window in the same spot in the silver panel and the white cardbase. But I just laid the silver on top of the white and ran it all through the cuttlebug at the same time. It didn't cut through the white, but it did leave a big impression where I could place the circle nestability after I had taken the silver panel out of the sandwich. And it left that embossed 'frame' on the silver panel for a little extra texture!
I then simply taped some acetate in the window, die cut the Simon Says Stamp snowflake from SU!'s new Gold Foil paper (backed with Scor tape so that the snowflake became a sticker) and placed it in the window. The 3 little 'nail heads' at the bottom are some of the circle cut outs from the snowflake - they were too perfect not to use!
As for the inside, I dithered (that's a mom word for sure!) whether to stamp the sentiment so that it could be partially seen through the window or not. In the end I stamped a Creatiate 'Merry Christmas' in Cherry - here's how it looks. Although maybe you could argue that it mimics the cluttered, layered look of the ornaments in the box, I think I prefer it without the sentiment! I'd love to hear what you think! And we'd love to see you link up - the deadline is Wednesday Feb 12.
