Clear Snowflakes

German Phrase of the Day: Wir waren zusammen im Konzert. = We have been to the concert together. Actually...I couldn't tell you the last time I went to a concert. Oh wait, yes I can! It was a Ralph's World concert in San Francisco!! We were in a dive bar near the Mission District at 10am on a Saturday surrounded by 3-6 year-olds all dancing in the aisles to Green Gorilla! If you have young kids...check him out! We LOVE his music...it's great when mom and dad enjoy singing along as much as the kids!

Today's card is one I made after my recent Pipoos trip. I used more of my stained glass stickers as I call them and made an acetate card. Pretty cool, huh? I started with a half sheet of acetate folded in half, then I applied the snowflake outline stickers randomly. I colored them in with my Sakura 3D gel pens and left them to dry.

For the inside, I trimmed a piece of Brocade Blue, stamped on it with Versamark (for the large snowflake) and Night of Navy for the greeting, and then sponged the edges and adhered it inside the card. Voila...SUPER easy!

If you look at the detail photo you can really see the translucent effect of the gel pens. I just love those things!!
