We are in the full swing for Fall here in North Dakota; the leaves are turning and showing us their autumnal color palette, the nights are cooling down and the daylight hours are shortening every day.

Faith outdid herself for this Blog Hop and variety of images. Not only are there new fall images but there are also wintery/ Christmas images. If you are like me, I’m trying to get a jump on my holiday cards – hopefully this will result in a more relaxing holiday season!
This is an aperture card, the outside has the opening with the snowflakes surrounding it. The image and sentiment are on the inner part of the card as seen here:

I have one last card to share with you -
I’m not sure how well you can tell by looking at the photo but the middle of the card is an acetate panel – you can see to the inner part of the card where the sentiment is. I took the sentiment from O Christmas Treen and cropped it off and used it for the inside panel.
The tricky thing about working with acetate is the backside shows so I finished off the back of the from of the card – a hint for you if you decide to try this, reverse everything (mirror image)! or things won’t align very well.
