Yes, that's right, today's card features acetate which I used without being forced! As the Autumn/Winter mini catalogue draws to a close on the 31st January, I thought I'd take the opportunity to showcase a few of my favourite stamp sets that will be retiring. I have loved playing with the Ornament Keepsakes set and coordinating dies, but so far I have only made 3D type ornaments on cards. Here I have gone 2D but overset the ornaments over a layer of the most beautiful acetate with a flocked design on it. Come and have a look:
I cut out a panel from the white card and replaced it with the acetate. I stuck over some red card on the reverse to secure the acetate in place and to make the inside a bit more attractive. I stamped the ornaments in Real Red to coordinate with the flock, cut out with the matching dies, punched a hole in the top of each with my Crop-a-dile and tied some white baker's twine through. The ornaments were then secured back over the panel.
As the card uses a snippet, I'll be popping along to play in Di's playground and it's Rudolph Day at Sarn's blog so double playtime for me!

My parents have just got a dog and I cannot wait to meet him. They have wanted a dog for 27 years, they tell me, unfortunately my brother and I changed their plans! He's a black labrador, 8 months old and was abandoned. He is currently enjoying the snow, taking all his new toys out into it and, not content with that, he has also snaffled my mum's walking socks out of the house! So on that note, here is today's picture:
