C.R.A.F.T Challenge 16 - DT card

This is my DT card for this week's challenge 16 on C.R.A.F.T!

I decided to make a Christmas card for my baby granddaughter Ada with a removeable clear, acrylic star which can go on the Christmas tree until New Year and thereafter hang in her window or on her door, which is why I haven't overdone the Christmas theme on the star.

Why I always pick such difficult to photograph projects I really have no clue - I guess I just like a challenge! LOL! Glitter card and clear plastic! Hah!
The photo is awful (I'll try to get a better one tomorrow) - the glitter card is actually pink, (though you'd never know it), the front card with the glitter dots is white and the elements are from K&Co 'Swell Noel'.

My base card is my usual 21 cm square fronted with the pink glitter card. The white glitter spot card was trimmed approx 1cm smaller all round and I used the acrylic star as a template and drew around it centred on the back of the spotty card but cut about 3mm bigger allround, so the star would fit nicely.
The star is a Clear Scrap from a set I bought last year but would be very easy to make yourself with a heavy acetate. All I did with this was trim the edge with a white glitter trim and add Ada's name in the centre with a white puffy velvet alphabet. At least I don't need many letters!
The finishing touch was simply a selection of the 'Swell Noel' Grand Adhesions and a white glittery thread from which to hang the star.
Hope you like it!
Thanks for looking.
