Week 1, card 5 Holiday card boot camp - Acetate card

I absolutely loved Jennifer McGuire's card for holiday card boot camp today - she did an acetate card with a navy blue panel on the front, with a Christmas tree stamped and embossing in white.  Here's my attempt - my first ever acetate card!
 I used some metallic cardstock that has been sitting in my stash for yonks - it added some gorgeous sheen to the card.  I also added plenty of bling to the tree :)
 I had to photograph it against a blue background, getting away from my usual Cristina Re quilted paper - I tried it, but you couldn't see any of the stamping on the acetate at all!!

    1. It is from a Stampin' Up stamp set, with some really nice snowflakes as well. I think the set is called "Snow Swirled".

    1. The tree is from a Stampin' Up stamp set called "Snow Swirled". The background stamp is from Inkadinkado, and the sentiment is from a Hero Arts set called "Holiday Sayings". As far as I know, all of them are now discontinued (I made this card 5 years ago!)
