Jingle Belles 45:It came Upon a Midnight CLEAR

Hi all!  This week's prompt from the gals at Jingle Belles is clear-ly so much fun!!! We are invited to make a card using transparencies, embellies, glass ( sounds interesting!!), stickers and anything else you can think of, as long as it contains an element of clear to it!!That got me thinking and then searching through my stash for something that met this week's challenge criteria. I found a sheet of Hambly acetate that I really wanted to use so I played around with it until I came up with this......

I pulled out a sheet of digi elements that I had made using My Digital Studio. These ornaments and greeting come from a digi file from Stampin' Up!, I just made them a size I wanted and then cut them out. The scalloped border was made with leftover bits of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the scallop border punch.

I added some liquid pearls( totally forgot I had this fab product- it was hidden in  my stash of Stickles !!!) to the ornaments and the strip below the sentiment for a little touch of elegance. I also popped up one ornament for more dimension. The gold cording is from a retired spool that I bought years ago form SU and I seem to have an endless supply of ( until I need it and  then I willl not have enough!!! LOL)!

I "hid" the inside greeting behind the strip on the front. First,  I stamped it in Whisper White craft ink and then heat embossed it so it would stand out against the shimmery green background. You can see where I folded and adhered the acetate card front to the base. I used Terrifically Tacky tape so it would stay in place.
This card maesures 5.25 by 5.25 inches ... it fits nicely inside of SU square envelopes.
 So that's my card for Jingle Belles!! Thanks for stopping by..... until next time...
Happy Crafting!!
