monochromatic blues






Have you ever worked on an acetate card? This was my first try and I love how it turned out! I will do these more in the future for workshops- great technique idea!

I decided to enter the CARDS blog challenge again, monochromatic in all blues. I thought that the acetate would work perfectly with a Snowflake design, add to the cold frozen image. The stamp is from CTMH and used MS glitter to add pizazz. Blue rhinestone to finish it off. Also used lots of scraps for this card. The only part that becomes tedious is making sure to hide the glue strips, using lots of larger cardstock pieces inside the card (one to write a sentiment on and the other to finish off the front.

Also for the challenges:
Paper Sundaes#25: white plus one color
AudSentimentsChallenge: #6 no sentiment
Christmas Stamping: #56, free challenge
