Acetate Christmas

Have you tired this yet? I have seen so many of these acetate cards I had to try at least one. So off I went to buy some acetate but got projector sheets instead, which is close to the same thing.

Anyway this is what I did. Cut acetate 4 1/4 by 5 1/2. Fold in half, I did not score it as I was afraid it would crack it. So hand fold it. I stamped using SU Craft White ink, and had to emboss it so I embossed in white also for my snowflakes. Next I stamped my image on card stock and colored him in. Cut him out and mounted to Lovely Lilac then mounted this to the center as best I could on the front of the acetate. Then stamp a verse on card stock for the inside to cover up the tape from attaching your front piece. Layer like you did on the front. I also did the opposite side the same way. I didn't take a picture of the back of the card but I stamped with a sign with snowballs and it said "For Sale 5 cents" and this is my back message.

Now if you don't have any acetate or projector sheets (sold at Office Max) then try this on some vellum. It won't be as see through but I think it would also look nice. On the inside you will see my son's fingers he was holding it open for me.

Are you all ready for Thanksgiving? We are celebrating at my sisters house. All I need to do is bring deviled eggs. How easy is that.
