New England Winter Acetate Card

Hello my lovelies, how's your Saturday going? Today's card features one of my all time favourite stamps from Chocolate Baroque, yes it's New England Winter again. I just love this  little house.

To make this acetate card I cut the front off an 8x8card blank leaving a little border (about 2cm) along the top and used red line tape to attach an acetate panel. I stamped the gorgeous little house from New England Winter on watercolour card and added some colour with watercolour paints, highlighted with glitter and glossy accents. I cut this out and then tore several strips of card, adding glitter to the torn edges. The important thing with this style of card is to add some weight to the front of the card otherwise it doesn't stand up properly so the strips of snowy card give the front some strength. Layer the strips of card, popping the house in between. I added some 'snow' with a white Posca Pen and some icicles with glue and glitter. I stencilled the moon using Seasonal Elements stencil and white gesso with a sprinkle of glitter. The sentiment is from Let's Get Festive. I made the background using watercolour paint, creating a very dilute wash of colour. 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

A Snowflakes Promise: Anything goes
Creates and Makes: Anything goes
Christmas at Sweet Stampin: anything goes for Christmas
The Merry Christmas Challenge: Anything Christmas
