acetate window card

Good afternoon everyone, warm welcome to all followers old and new.

Love this heartfelt creations Christmas card collection paper pad,  gold and red goes with it so well.

A4 card cut to 6"wide, score @ 7".  shortest 5" side, cut a 2" strip from the bottom, this leaves you 3" from your fold line.
cut strong acetate 6" x 2", adhere with strong red tape, to both the card base and your cut of strip,  you will find it easer if you put this tape onto your acetate strip,   as shown front of the card.



Sun kissed fleur  flowers, have been stamped with versamark ink pad, gold embossing powder, onto blue and beige paper from the pad, heat set, then cut with matching die, brushed with Wink of Stella clear glitter pen,  layer up using  pva glue.
wrap ribbon onto a mat of red card and paper, a touch smaller that card.
do the same for the bottom section.
Adhere swirl, this is a Bella rose die, and flowers to card front, place a bow and bells with a small flower onto ribbon trim.
 Matt red card and paper a touch smaller than 7"x 6" for inside your card, then adhere, add peace script.
red stickles for flowers and dots

Another gorgeously designed card Pam. The pad has got lots of yummy things in it (I've only stroked mine so far!). The Sunkissed Fleur stamps/dies are so versatile - they can be used for any occasion. Love the colourway you've chosen.
