This was fun trying out the "reflection technique. I used acetate, stamping on front and back to make the reflection, then carefully embossing with white embossin gpowder on one side and hologram highlights on the other. Then I used spray adhesive, sprinkled with dazzling diamonds, and adhered to background piece. Well, There's a lot more to it than that, but that's the basics.

Very pretty and old fashioned looking. Thank you for explaining how you did the reflection technique here. Very ingenious and produces a great effect. Did you do the spray adhesive/DD glitter on the front or the back? How did you adhere it to the background piece? TFS. Linda

This is one of the best!!!!!!!!!! It is beautiful and definitely creates an emotionsl response in me. I love the winter season...so, this card just hints of warm cozy moments spent inside while winter magic sparkles outside. Thanks for sharing this idea!

I did the reflection part first on the acetate. I stamped it in white, embossed with Hologram Highlights, then turned the sheet over and stamped the design and sentiments, sprinkled with white EP and then turned it over and sprayed the back (where the reflection is stamped on the face) and sprayed it with adhesive. I sprinkled liberal amounts of glitter on the back, then sprayed again and affixed it to the background sheet. This corner punch was purchased at JoAnne's.
