Jingle Bells {TCP Tuesday 182 -Technique Challenge}

It's a TCP Tuesday project today (TCPTUES 182). Julie is our hostess this week with a technique challenge to use acetate.

I found several sheets of thin acetate in my stash presumably purchased to make window cards. I started out by coloring up this cutie patootie girl from the Jingle Bells set and then cut out. I cut the acetate with the big Snowflake CutUps and then used my finger to swipe Diamond Ranger Stickles to the snowflake to give it a bit of subtle glimmer although it is hard to see in the photo. The bells from the same set were stamped directly to my patterned paper as was the sentiment. I added some miniature bells that I picked up on a whim when shopping at one of the big box stores a couple of weeks ago. Do you think my noisy card will get some attention from the postal service? I generally followed the October Sketch For You to Try for the layout although I made it a square and reversed the panels.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp, CutUps and seam binding, Authentique dp, Bo Bunny bling, Ranger Stickles, Copic Markers

Copics: Skin-E000, E00, E11, R20; Hair-E33, E35, E37, E39, E57; Clothing-R24, R29, R59, G40, G82, G85, E40, E41, E50; Shoes-C3, C5, C7, C9
