Acetate & Chalk

This card is stamped on acetate I salvaged from embelly package, using stazon black.  Let it dry completely.  Run the backside, not the stamped side through the xyron machine to get glue on the backside.  I painted it with Pebbles Pearlesent Chalk and a No. 2 Filbert White Taklon brush on the side with the glue.  It's hard to see on the web, but this has a really nice sparkle to them.  You needn't worry over much about staying in the lines, as they will show through regardless.  I mounted the acetate on a white piece of paper.  The thing will still stick to paper after the chalk.  I cut it into perfect quarter square, and glued the squares equal distance apart.  I placed this on the inside of a card into which I had cut a square.  Make sure to line up the center of the picture with the center hole in the card.  I used a white piece of paper to create a frame for the inside piece.
The front I decorated with a BoBunny decorative paper, and created a white frame for the hole.  I like to think of these as windows, but this one doesn't quite looke like a window.  I cut the snowflakes with a sizzix die.
