White, sparkling, Christmas, Magnolia, acetate, easel card!

If you only have a little bit of time to craft - make it count.
I wanted to cover lots of challenges with one card and found some for acetate and some for easels so there was only one thing for it - an acetate easel card.

It started out with an all white theme for this week's challenge at Oh Alice, but afterwards I read the small print and I think Christmas is not allowed so I may have fluffed it. I've used lots of glitter though and it is pretty!
All the embossing on the scalloped circles is done with my new Papermania folders, they've worked fab, no problems. The little panel at the front is a Cuttlebug border which I bought in a pack cos I wanted the ruler one that was in there.
This is a view of the easel, I made it slightly different to the card one's with just 2 folds to make 3 panels.
I experimented with a scrap of acetate first and then thought I would use it to make a matching tag.
It kind of stands up on it's own as I've used quite a thick acetate.

Brilliant concept, and I think you may have started a new trend with acetate easel cards! Your main card could be for any winter occasions, so I don't think the challenge police are going to come knocking, LOL! Thanks so much for playing along with Oh, Alice!
