CCAYR May mid-month challenge: precipitation


This is my card for Christmas cards all year round May challenge:precipitation. I'm in the Christmas Belles group so we are posting here today - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the Belles group. The Gingerbread gals posted at the beginning of May here - please have a look at their lovely designs and join in our challenge there.

I decided to make an acetate card, using some snowy acetate and some glittered toppers from a kit that I bought years ago. I placed identical shaped toppers behind the front ones and the same at the back of the card, so that all four sides were decorated, leaving one shape inside blank so that a personal greeting can be written if desired.

I added quite a lot of 3D glittered silver and white snowflakes (from The Works), once again putting these 'back to back' to avoid seeing bare backs!
