Festive Friday #4 2♥12 | Acrylic front Wonderland

The Festive Friday Blog Hop is hosted by Terri Sproul. This bi-monthly blog hop features Holiday cards from many talented card crafters as we get our Christmas cards ready early this year. If you reached this stop from Terri's Blog Terri Sproul , then you are in the right spot--she is also the beginning of the blog!

For this card I used a random piece of coredinations card  stock that had gotten wet and then when dried left some interesting pattering with the dye in the card stock--a happy whoopsie if you will. I used my favorite outline stickers by Starkraft on an acrylic 4" square and colored the outline of the trees black with India Ink by Stewart Superior. I then used Sakura Glitter Lacquer to color the trees and silver metallic lacquer to make snow mounds. I covered the snow mounds with Terri Sproul's new Ultra Fine Glitter. I added silver outline snowflakes and stars to the card  stock and attached the acrylic to the card stock with Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer. I added more outlines snowflakes on top placing a crystal bling in each center. The acrylic front was added to a 5"square card base that had only a 2" front that the acrylic over hangs the lip of the card. I added a bit of polka-dotted green Crafty Ribbons Ribbon to the side for accent. I really enjoy how this fun little card turned out! I hope you do too.

The next stop on the hop is Chris! She always has great designs at Stinky Dog Designs!
