Mercury Glass Acetate makes a great snowy background for this #Elfie Christmas card
I just love versatile products that can be used in lots of ways and this catalogue is chock full of versatile wonders!

For example - the glorious Mercury Glass Acetate that I've used over Basic Black cardstock for this background.  There are two patterns in the pack and 2 12"x 12" sheets of each.  They arrive with a protective coating on one side that is easy to peel off when you're ready to use a piece - and it's easy to trim to the size you want.

The #Elfie images are great to colour and are also versatile.  I've trimmed away part of the image so that this little elf can lean against the striped ribbon that is doubling for a pole.

I coloured the image with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.

Having torn the top edge, I added a Whisper White panel to represent a snowy foreground and added some shadows with a light gray alcohol marker.

I cut the greeting using a die from the Ornate Frames die set and then sponged on an edge of Silvery Shimmer ink.  I couldn't decide with frame I liked best, so I made another card!
