ABC Christmas Challenge - T is for...

We have a brand new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Angela is the host, and the theme is:

'T is for Transparent'
(In other words...use something see-through on your project)

We are sponsred for this challenge by the fabulous Stamp Fairy:

Prize: $10 to spend in the Stamp Fairy store!

I made an acetate fronted card by fixing a piece of acetate on to a piece of kraft card...I sandwiched the join between two layers of kraft to cover up the tape. I stamped some snowflakes and swirls (from the 'A Bright Tomorrow' set by Penny Black) in white Stazon on the acetate, and simply added a sentiment (from the 'Merriest Wishes' set by Hero Arts) on the inside.

(Apologies for the awful photo...I found it so difficult to photograph this card!)

Here's another view:

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
