Just Magnolia Challenge - Acetate



It’s the first Friday of the month, so it’s Special Monthly Challenge time sponsored as always by Simon Says Stamp.  And they are sponsoring the prize with a fabulous $30 voucher to spend in their store (and they pay the shipping!)  Pop across to their store and take a peek at all the new goodies they have in – oh my the Tim Holtz stuff is droolworthy!!


Our challenge this month is ACETATE – you need to incorporate it into your project in any way you like, so it could be an acetate card like some of our more adventurous DT members have done, it could be an acetate pocket, a shaker card, an altered acetate container or even simply used as an embellishment (like Bev did ). 



I am a bit late with this card I didn’t get home until 10pm last night and was just too tired to finish it, serves me right for leaving everything to the last minute.   I found a sheet of Die Cut Snowflakes in last years Christmas Paper stash, have no idea where it came from but it was perfect for this card.  I cut a 5.1/2” sq from the die cut sheet and glued it to a 5.1/2” square card made from acetate, I wish you could see it in real life as it looks as if the whole thing is just like filigree.  I coloured one of last years Christmas Tildas with Distress Inks I added Cherry Blossom, 15cm Roses and 6mm Closed Rosebuds from Wild Orchid Crafts the edges of all the flowers have been glittered, this hasn’t been picked up by the camera.


Have a good day everyone and thanks for looking

Hugs Jacqui xxxx
