An acetate window card

This is another card for my CHNC challenge 129 where I'm asking to see a frame, a window or an aperture on your Christmas cards.

I've used a ready-made stepper card, Kanban card, border strips and sentiment strip with a peel off. The picture has an acetate window over it so that it is rounded in the front to stand a bit away from the picture. The paper chains and holly are printed on the acetate as well as on the picture underneath to give a bit of dimension.
