Bah Humbug Challenge 21

Hello again, another lovely morning, heaven knows what the afternoon will bring, did any of you get that deluge last night!!!

My card today is another for my Christmas box, it is looking very healthy now and yes I do feel quite smug! The Bah Humbug challenge this week is 'Acetate'. Now when I saw this one, my heart did sink a bit. I don't think I have ever used acetate and have never bought any so the Internet had to come to my rescue again.  After a quick search of the online galleries and some videos on Youtube (well I say a quick search, it wasn't really cos once you start looking you get sidetracked and then forget what you are looking for in the first place lol) this is what I came up with.

I had an old box on top of my wardrobe that a scrapbook kit came in and it had an acetate window in the lid, so I pinched that (never throw anything away ha ha).

I cut a window in my card with my nestie and then made a frame out of silver card with the next size up. I sandwiched the acetate between the 2 cards and then used a lovely snowflake peeloff on the outside and also put one on the inside too.  I then embellished the rest of the card with smaller snowflakes and cut out a label with my x cut punch and added a peeloff sentiment/border and attached with a little gold brad.

I am also entering this card into Susie and Vikki's Challenge as this week it is snowflakes.

Wow Debs ... this card is gorgeous.
Love how you used your nesties for the window shape.
I can also sympathise with the 'getting sidetracked' issue but a woman's gotta' do what a woman's gotta' do LOL!
