I wanted to make something a bit special for my mum.  She relies on a lot of Carers to help her and so I always make extra of my cards to send from her so I can't really give her that card from me!!  Some time ago, I bought the Polkadoodles Christmas Boutique Magazine with kit and I was having a look through there for inspiration and wow..... I was blown away by one of the designs so it is an absolutely unashamed copy but I am so thrilled with it and mum will love it too.  Hope you like it.  I used the stamps in the kits.  The floor-base of the card is made by a concertina of acetate, ice dust sprinkled over it and then the stamps coloured and cut out with Promarkers and glittered, glued into place and then one A4 sheet of acetate folded in half over the top and stuck down to the base.  A couple of borders cut on the machine hides the tape holding on the acetate cover.  I then made a label with my Print and Cut Black Cat Cougar machine and attached it to the top.  Oh and a Spellbinders rose and feather to add the finishing touch.  The photo just doesn't do it justice.  I might try to take another one in the daylight to see if it comes out better and replace these.
