'Twas the Night


A couple of challenges caught my fancy this week!  I thought I'd combine a few into this A5 sized Christmas card.  It didn't start out as an A5 card, but I underestimated and it wouldn't fit in a 5 x 7" envelope so I thought what the hell, I'll mat it on an A5 card front!

I placed a sheet of acetate directly beneath the frame and then used foam tape to attach it to the poem -  I wanted the top layer floating over the text. I was going to add a few of these snowflakes but after cutting out the house (SugarCuts Home Sweet Home) I had all the little "windows" left over and used them instead!

Here are the challenges - click on the subtitle to follow the link to the challenges!
