First Christmas!

This is the first Christmas card I've made this year, the first time I've used an acetate wrap on a card and the first time I've used StāzOn® ink.  So please forgive the stamped images as they're not as crisp as I would've liked. 

I used a gold card blank and cut the acetate to fit the front, overlapping slightly, then scored and folded to create a fixing tab. 
Using a poinsettia stamp and Jet Black ink, I stamped images to cover the whole of the acetate.  Once the ink was dry, I coloured the images on the reverse side with red and green permanent pens. 
I added an outline sticker sentiment to the card so it would show between the poinsettia, then attached the acetate to the card. 
To finish off I added some twine and a bow to the left side of the card. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
1. Fab 'n' Funky Challenges - #179 Christmas In July
2. Great Impressions - Anything Goes
3. Imagination Crafts - Anything Goes

  3. This is really unusual and I wouldn't have known it was the first time you had used acetate as a wrap if you hadn't told us. Thanks for joining us at Fab n Funky
