This month's cards are a little outside the norm, they use acetate for the front panel.

Yesterday I posted a tutorial on how to assemble an acetate front card (link below the supplies list) and this video reviews that process as I walkthrough a Christmas & a winter card.

I started this project at Linda's. We had a great time playing with the gilded leafing flakes in her craft room.

I have been leery of opening this project having heard that it is very messy. Indeed the messiness of this product is real, but not like glitter, this is more like floating ash from a fire.

This week I had the pleasure of crafting in the flesh with my mom and her friend Shelley. I haven't crafted with someone other than my husband since last summer!  And I had to bring one new bundle - Quiet Meadow.
