Acetate Stepper

Hi! I do not like these misty murky mornings. You know, it has just brought a song to mind that we used to sing at school when I was very young - "One misty, moisty morning when cloudy was the weather, There I met an old man clothed all in leather." Well that's done it for me because I'll be singing that all day now - until something else reminds me of another song!!

My Card

A few months ago on Doreen's blog  (Doreen's Dream) she made a card  using acetate  over it. I liked the idea but never thought any more about it.  Anyway, I came across my thick acetate yesterday and this project came into my mind so thought I would have a go.  I couldn't find her card so I just had to do what I think I remember!

I made a stepper card and then stuck the acetate over it to form a tent shape. I added some more card stock over the fold and across the bottom of the acetate. The image is a topper from Hobby House, using  a Wee image, that I fussy cut after first adding a little more colour with Promarkers and lots of glitter to her wings. The sentiment is LOTV and die cut with SB Lacy Circles. I then just added some ribbon and pearls. I kept it very simple, but it is such an easy card to do that I shall certainly be doing it again and elaborating on it. The pink card stock is from one of the First Edition pads and since it was an offcut  left from another project I don't know which one.

Keep well and warm everybody.
