Penny Black Saturday Challenge 16

I really enjoyed visiting all your blogs last week to oogle over the inside of your cards and what a fabulous job you all made of making the inside as special as the front......gave me lots of ideas.
The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is "SEASONS" Spring..Summer..Autumn...Winter....take your pick.....I have really been feeling the cold this week especially in the evenings and hey I am still in Christmas mode after the christmas samples....so it had to be "WINTER" which is just around the corner. I must admit to loving frosty crisp mornings and the first fall of snow is always a wonder to behold.
I thought I would go with an acetate card and they are perfect for snowy Christmas cards but some folk find them tricky so here is how I made this card......

  • Cover the inside and the back of the card with paper and stick the Thickers on here
  • The scallop circle, snowflakes and stars have been stuck on the front and inside front.. mirrored exactly so no worries about glue marks showing and if you wish you can use the inner scallop to write your greeting. Or you could place a white panel on the back of the card.
  • The ribbon is tied using my tutorial from earlier in the week and is as neat on the inside as the outside.
Easy peasy.....so give it a try.....can't wait to see what season you have chosen.


  • Papers: Sandylion Snowflakes Embossed
  • Image: Penny Black..Cuddle in Snow
  • Sentiment: American Craft Foam Thickers
  • Snowflakes: Cuttlebug Die Set
And a little bonus offering for "SPRING".....that is a whole other story.....don't even go there and if you think you have seen this one before....your eyes are playing tricks on you or you need new specs..


Have a great weekend everyone and I look forward to paying you all a visit to see your fabby creations
Love....Kath xxxxxx
