Paper Trimmer
Scor pal
Pop up dots
Staz on Ink any colors
2 eyelets American crafts Silver
3M Write On projector sheet cut to 5 1/2 x 11
Two small Stock squares  2 3/4 "
Two Larger Stock squares 3 1/2"
Stamped image

Stamp a small spotty image to front of Acetate

Open the card and Stamp on the inside sheet toward the edges
Place the card back together and I used silver snow flakes to fill in the enpty spaces
Place brads through the front of the card and run ribbon through and tie in the front of the card

color the image and I distressed the snow flake

I used Nestabilities Label 1 (two white and two larger in blue)

Place the smaller white label downward in the center of the larger blue label for the writing area 

Apply the next larger blue label in the same fashion on the back of the front cover with pop dots facing up
Difficult to take photo

Little better view

I've glued the snow flake and button over the knot of the tied ribbon.  Sentiment added and the project is complete!  I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and try an acetate card, their a little difficult to photo but a dream to make!  Thanks for joining me!

4 squares from light Stock Paper cut to 1 7/8 x 1 7/8 (for image)
Dark stock paper for framing lighter paper cut to 2 x 2

A strip of coordinating stock paper cut to ¾ x 4 (pull tab hold bar)

Stamp or print and cut out your images on the Light 4 squares, color them in
I used copics Signo White pen and Jelly Roll "Clear Star" pen
Tape the images to their darker stock frames

Score the long strip at 2”,  2 ¾”, 3 ½”, 4 ¼”

Apply the Design paper to the Card base
Connect the small ¾ “ strip to the lower section of the face of the card with eyelets
Insert the un=scored end of the 9” strip under the ¾ inch stock paper

Place a 2” long piece of score tape in the middle of the top of the ¾ “ strip of stock
With the unscored end 9” strip under the ¾ dark holding strip, fold it forward and attach it down onto the sticky tape

From the bottom going up, adhere each of the squares to the 9” strip just under the score line

Use a 2” circle punch and snip out a small portion of a circle in the center of the bottom of the front of the card

Staple the ribbon to the bottom of the 9" pull tab centered
I added a button over it, distressed the edges, and added a silver metallic stazon sentiment
