Crazy 4 Challenges – Acetate!

c4c11-merry-christmas2-wm Happy Saturday everyone.

Are you ready for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge??? I know I am!

It is my turn to host the challenge this month, and this week I decided on an Acetate challenge. You need to create a card or project using acetate. There are so many different ways you can use acetate on your cards and I have listed a bunch of them over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog so don’t forget to check it out.

For my card this week I decided to use acetate as part of the front of the card so that the greeting which is on the inside can be seen from the outside of the card. I have seen a couple of these types of cards floating around the net lately and really wanted to play around with the idea myself…. hence the challenge.

I also used acetate to punch out my snowflakes but to help them to be seen I also punched out white snowflakes too and placed them both on top of each other.


The stamps that I used on my card today are from The Greeting Farm’s Xmas Sweeties set …. I just can’t resist sweet Anya & Ian! I am also loving the new Eskimo Kiss designer papers from Basic Grey which I picked up while shopping last week … yum! I used my sewing machine to sew along the two edges of my acetate.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards (thanks for the fun name Jessica … I love it!) over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.


Stamps: Xmas Sweeties – The Greeting Farm; Sentiment – Stamp It

Paper: White; Eskimo Kiss DP – Basic Grey

Other: Black Ink; MS Snowflake Punch; Sewing Machine; Red Grosgrain Ribbon; Acetate; Glitter Glue;  Foam Tapes; Copics

Frances, Your card is very cool. The little people are just darling and the way you combined the acetate is really nice. It was a bit of a "challenge" at first but turned out to be quite fun. smiles
