Rosie's Roadshow

I made this card as a Christmas "thank you"!  I wanted to keep it simple and the little Rosie's Roadshow Holiday House was just right.  I framed the image with SU Buckaroo Blue and floated it on a piece of acetate to give an icier look.  The window with frame was made with a die from MFT.  I can't find it on their website to link it right now, but I'm sure it is an MFT product because I purchased it at their boutique in Eustis.  I used a sponge and SU Buckaroo Blue to darken the edge of the frame and then added Clear Stickles to make it snowy.   

The tricky thing about acetate is you have to think about covering the back of the image you attach in the window.  It looks bad inside the card if the adhesive shows.  I made another square a little bigger and embellished it with a snowflake, so it covers the ugliness and adds a dark green frame behind the picture on the front.  Here's what the inside looks like...

Thanks for stopping by :)

  1. That's a lovely window card, though and I've never made one, so it may well be something I need to try...! Thanks for the inspiration and another lovely verse x
