Another Holiday card idea

Not my best photography, truly. But, another holiday card idea is just the ticket for this time of year (though I LOVE making Halloween cards, which I should probably do soon!), if you want to get started early. I had the coolest idea - to run a transparency (acetate) sheet through my Cuttlebug for some clear snowflakes! It looks cute in person, but I am not too sure about the photo (due to the glare). Anyway, with some color coordination and the right snowflake stamp, this background compliments these cute little snowmen, don't ya think? it's a simple design, but when you're making many multiples of one style, you gotta have something that's easy to reproduce... so this is one that whips up quickly. Here it is:
Sets: Circle of Friendship, Season of Friendship (snowflake), Season by Season ("christmas")
Colors: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss
Other: Red grosgrain, acetate, CB snowflake EF, glue dots, dimensionals, blender pen

They look great and yes, I can see a hint of the embossing. May have to give this one a try since I haven't even started on mine yet.
