Santa and Sleigh

Hi Folks
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  Here in the UK it is a bank holiday weekend so an extra day off work tomorrow, yippee.  We have had a lovely quiet day here today but got my mum and mother-in-law coming for dinner tomorrow.  

Today's card is a christmas card I have made using Imagination Crafts products.  I decided to have a go at making an acetate dome card.

I used the Santa and Sleigh stencil with Black Stars Sparkle Medium on acetate.  Left this to dry while I prepared the base.  I used the snowflake pre patterned card matted onto coredinations cardstock.  To add a bit more interest and to try and create a little scene I added some silver christmas tree peel offs and a little snowman topper.  The sentiment is also a peel off.
When the sparkle medium was dry on the acetate I cut it to size ensuring that it was wider than I needed.  I then scored either side in order to be able to wrap the acetate around the card base.  I made sure that I scored it about a centimetre wider than I needed to create the dome effect.  

Hopefully you can see the dome effect on the next photograph.

Really pleased with how this turned out.  Something a bit different but not too difficult to do.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.

Very creative and very effective! I love stamping on and working with acetate, I think it elevates the design and creates an entirely different design Aesthetic. You chose a fabulous scene with which to employ this technique! Very, Nicely Done! Thanks for stopping by our house at 613 Avenue Create!
