Bah Humbug challenge 21

I can hardly believe I have 21 Christmas cards made already and this week the challenge at Bah Humbug is to use acetate which is something which I rarely use so had to think for this one. I eventually settled on printing out an image from My craft Studio onto acetate and them applying gilding flakes to it. I also just had to use my wonderful prize of a Spellbinders Christmas lights die - background paper is from Artylicious and a small sentiment from Papermania.

Why is it I wonder that as soon as I've completed a challenge card I think of a ton of other possibilities I could have used?? Not to worry there are plenty of weeks left to use these ideas.


  1. Its such a good idea to be making Christmas cards all the year and I expect the challange helps the motivation and inspiration... might have a go if I can get my head round Christmas stash.. mines all "stashed away".. tee hee....

  2. Lovely that you have used your 'prize' on this card, very effective.


  3. Well done Val - brilliant to see you've used the lovely prize you got from Bah Humbug the other week.

  4. Those guilding flakes are so impressive aren't they? Love your card and I'm glad the lights are coming in handy for you. Know what you mean about as soon as you've done a card you get another idea - I do that when I'm visiting people's blogs. I see such gorgeous work and think oooooooooh I could have used that image or like today 'I could have got my guilding flakes out'. Not to worry there is always another day.
