How to...
step 1:
cut 2 pieces of paper: one in white cardstock and one in acetate, This last one must be a larger piece (than the card itself)
fold that extra 1" to be folded on the back of an A2 piece of white cardstock
Glue on font of the acetate the die cut,
Glue on the back of the acetate a piece of teared white paper  (for the mount of snow)

  1. Hi Bibiana, snap!I posted an acetate card today, which I made for my husband! Your card is beautiful and what a gorgeous photo of your babies...may I wish you a very happy Christmas, filled with love, peace and joy. Thank you so much for all your inspiration, hugs Carole Z X

  2. Love the gold sentiment with that white garland, such a pretty way to showcase a picture of your sweet furbabies, sorry that you are having to celebrate without Laika this year, hugs to you.

  3. You are always so creative. I have not worked with acetate to make a card that way before. If I use acetate it is usually disquised with inks. I think your card is so pretty.

  4. Magnifique carte, merci pour le tuto. Joyeux Noël. Bises.

  5. This is beautiful, Bibliana! It is the photo of your puppies that makes it so special. Although my pets are cats, I love all animals. I still cry over my Muffin kitty who passed away 10 years ago. There will always be a hole in my heart, even after all these years. So sorry about your beloved Laika - she was a beautiful dog and it is obvious you loved her very much. I know your other dog misses her too. Sending hugs, dear Bibliana.

  6. Beautiful card...another showcase of your wonderful creativity. Hope Christmas brings peach to your heart. So sorry for the lost of your precious Laika.

  7. A special and wonderful card Bibiana. Made as only you can. Love is a wonderful thing, It matters not where that love is focused it only matters that it is. Many believe that love ends with a loss but that is not true. The words "Absence makes the heart grow fonder" is true. Laika was certainly a lucky dog to have you care so much. Major HUGS to you. Wishing you the most wonderful and Merry Christmas. - Jim

  8. Una tarjeta muy original y precios. Siento mucho lo de tu perrita Laika. Te deseo unas dulces fiestas, llenas de luz y amor . Un abrazo.

  9. ta carte est superbe bravo
    joyeux noel
