It Came Upon a Midnight CLEAR

Yes, another Christmas card!  School let out two weeks ago and we have already had a fun family vacation and soon off to another :)

Crafting has taken a back seat, but I am determined to keep up with the gals at Jingle Belles for 2016.  This fortnight is to use something CLEAR on your card.  

I have two gallon-size Ziplock bags full of commercial card fronts from Christmas cards I have received over the past few years.  I took one out that had the acetate snow/snowflake panel.  The card was originally quite large; approximately 6x8.  I removed the acetate panel and the metallic "Season's Greetings" from the base of the card.  I cut the base card into pieces (those background shiny snowflakes and the dry embossed suede paper.)  The background was originally one layer, but I rearranged my cut pieces into layers and created a standard A2 card (4.25" x 5.5").

The dry-embossed suede part is quite stunning in real life, but my photography skills are lacking and I am not doing it justice.

I hope to see you over at Jingle Belles with your CLEAR-ly awesome creation.

Happy Tuesday!

So clever to use that acetate panel on your card and recycle at the same time.
