Stamp with Fun # 27 - Card with acetate

If you can bare another step card, here's one with a difference made for this week's Stamp with Fun challenge.I got the idea from a Create & Craft programme with Sheena Douglas a few week's ago. I stock and sell a number of Creative Expressions products, such as the Beach stamps used in my last step card, so they email the programme times. Anyway, I liked the idea of putting the acetate over to protect the finer details and to be able to use the bow to hang it from a tree or similar so in this case I embossed the back of the acetate, stamped snowflakes on the front and punched holes with the Big Bite to thread silver ribbon through for my bow.
Encore, une carte d'escalier! J'ai utilisé une carte double 125mm carré et plié avec pas de 17, 45,5 et 62,5mm en hauteur. Alors, j'ai confectionner avec papier nacre embossé avec la Cuttlebug et encré avec Brilliance argente; 'Charlotte with Sleigh' de 'Whiff of Joy' tamponné fait avec Versafine et crayons aquarelle, colle stylo et 'Glamour Dust'; flocons de neige tamponné avec encre Brilliance sur la transparente; l'arbre de Anita's découpage; texte chez Compagnie des elfes tamponnée avec ColorBox encre craie et decoupé avec la Cuttlebug et etiquettes de Spellbinders.
Used: Dovecraft square card blank (back folded in half, front concertinaed twice) ; Whiff of Joy 'Charlotte with Sleigh', stamped with Versafine and coloured with watercolour pencils and highlighted with a glue pen and Glamour Dust powder; pearl white paper embossed with Snowflakes Cuttlebug folder and highlighted with Brilliance silver ink; snowflake stamp (unknown make) stamped on acetate with Brilliance platinum; Compagnie des elfes text stamped with ColorBox pumpkin patch and cut out with Spellbinders tags on the cuttlebug; tree is an 'extra' from an Anita's decoupage pack.
