Clear Acrylic Dry Embossed Winter Card

I made this card for this week's Snow Much Fun challenge at Heart2Heart Challenges.   There were so many beautiful samples from Team A that I just had to play along even though its not my Design Team week!  Go check it out by visiting Heart2HeartChallenges.blogspot.com.

I used one of our recently retired acrylic cards and put it through my Cuttlebug to give it some swirls of snow.  After I embossed it, I put some Silver Glitz Glitter Gel on the inside of the swirls and backed that with some of our retired Wonderland paper, the reverse side of the paper is the blue I used for the snow drift.  The trees were cut from the old Jingle paper pack using my new Winter Woodland Cricut cartridge that my kids gave me for Christmas.   A bit of cheery red baker's twine and some Stardust Glitz on the tree tops and snowy hill tops this one off.

I had so much fun using these acrylic cards!  I picked up several packs when they were in the clearance section on my website at www.Paige.CTMH.com because I wanted to play around with embossing on them.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Stay crafty my friends!
