Do you SEE what I SEE?

We're still celebrating holiday cards that contain clear elements, whether those be in the form of pre-printed transparencies, acrylic embellishments, or just shaker or window cards which utilize a bit of plastic packaging. 

Scroll down to the original post for full details and to link up your own masterpieces!

Here's how we were CLEAR-ly inspired this week:

Lauren says, "My friend Elisabeth at Paper Anthology special-ordered this beautiful Tim Holtz/Sizzix Bigz Ice Skates die for me in January, so HOW have I not used it until now?? I'm pleased with my card, though, so I'm sure I'll be using it again soon. I cut the shoe part of the skates from an older Ciao Bella patterned paper; and the blades from matte silver metallic cardstock. The background consists of two beautiful rich purple papers from Blue Fern Studios' Eclectic Charm line, and the Hero Arts Snowflake Cluster is cut from silver Non-Shed Glitter Paper. I made a custom mix of Eyelet Outlet Sequins, featuring some Round, some Snowflake and some Stars."

Stephanie says, "When I saw Lauren's Transparent card base last week, I knew I had to try to channel my inner Lauren and make my own (how did I do??).  Pretty much, when I channel Lauren, I reach the point that I think I'm done ... and then I add at least two more things ... in this case there are distressed papers, bling swirls, hole-punch-computer paper, vintage postage stamps, die cut flourishes, glittery snowflakes ... and of course a deer die cut and vintage Penny Black Sentiment ... all on a perfect gold design transparency card base."
