Cupcake craft challenge #99 – DT card

** This is my second post for today **

Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again, I’m back with my card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  Our theme this week has been set by Victoria and she would like us to use acetate on our projects.  Now I haven’t used acetate for a very long time and when I eventually found some in my stash I decided to make a shaker easel card.  Here is my card (I apologise for the photos but the acetate was really hard to photograph):

CCC challenge 99 - acetate

In the next photo the acetate really glares but I wanted to show you the embossing on the acetate a little closer

Some of my “shaker” snowflakes did stick to the foam pads but overall I am really pleased with the final result, especially as I haven’t made a shaker card for years. 

Our sponsor this week is Paper Jewels and the lucky winner will receive a $15.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store.  They have some gorgeous stamps for sale so you will be spoilt for choice.
