Acetate Tree

Well I decided to give the 'Less is More Acetate Challenge' another go. A few people had done some embossing on acetate so I decided to give it a try. I have used the small Xmas tree embossing folder that was free in the Christmas issue of Docrafts Creativity Magazine. I embossing the acetate and them added some Papermania Gems and a green star gem from my stash. I cut the aperture with a Nellie Snellen Die stuck in embossed acetate in with DST and then added a sheet of white pearlescent paper to the back. The bow with the bell I got from Papermill shop before they closed down. Mandi and Chrissie certainly got me thinking with this weeks challenge and I enjoyed making both my cards. Thanks to both of you for a great
challenge every week.

I am entering this into -
Alphabet challenge - 'X' for Xmas
