A Clear Christmas Card

 I used a brand new stamp set along with a cover die that I got last year.

supplies: white cardstock, clear acetate, Wplus9 Pine Frame cover die, Stampendous Festive Season stamps, markers, Small Talk Occasions sticker

After cutting the pine frame and gluing it to my acetate card base, I also cut 2 oval dies; 1 will go on the inside of the card for my sentiment, and on the very back of the card to cover the tape I used to secure it (see picture below). Then I stamped, colored, and fussy-cut the birch log arrangement, and glued it onto the front.  I wanted a sentiment that wouldn't cover up the design, so I chose a Small Talk sticker and edged it in red ink.

Here's a shot of the inside.  I used the heart and holly stamp from the Festive Season set, as well as an old Hero Arts woodblock sentiment - love the font!

I haven't made one of these clear cards in ages - it's nice to do something different for a change!

Thanks for stopping by!
