Floating squirrel

One of my colleagues is leaving to start a new job on Thursday and I wanted to make something a little different for them, and this is what I came up with.

I took a square piece of white card and added the snowy squirrel topper to it. I then measured a piece of foiled acetate to be 1cm bigger on the horizontal, so that I could make it into the front panel for the card. I then added the squirrel in fir tree partial topper to the opening edge of the acetate. Finally I stamped the Best Wishes sentiment from a Woodware Men's sentiment stamp collection. I was going to stamp it using StazOn ink, but I couldn't find it, so instead I had to use standard ink and then heat emboss with Hi-puff Heat it up embossing powder. This did bend the acetate slightly unfortunately, but I still really like the finished card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
CCM #251 Embossing
MMM #116 Critters
SOS #414 The Great Outdoors
TheCardConcept #129 Warm Winter Wishes (colours and snow)
TheMaleRoom #130 Use embossing
MTTC #426 No digi's allowed
Notjustcards - Anything Goes

Thanks for taking the time to look at my creations,
