No Peeking Before Christmas

Good Sunday morning to you all.  It's been a while since I posted but I was busy this week planning for a class I had yesterday.  Today I have my card for the weekly challenge - Merry Monday #31.

The card base is Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Added to that is a strip of Snow Festival designer paper matted with  Primrose Petals card stock.  The sentiment from the No Peeking stamp set was heat embossed on Whisper White card stock with VersaMark and Cherry Cobbler embossing powder.  It was punched out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.  I added a 2-3/8" scalloped circle of Primrose Petals card stock.  Two "tails" were made with Primrose Petals and Whisper White card stocks.  I sponged around the edges of the white one with Cherry Cobbler ink and attached it to the Primrose Petals ones.  They were then adhered to the back of the circle.  They were all popped up on the card with dimensionals.  Rhinestones colored with a Gumball Green marker were added.  The image from the No Peeking stamp set was first colored with Basic Black, Gumball Green and Primrose Petals markers and then stamped on Whisper White card stock.  I cut it out and added it behind the sentiment layer using dimensionals.  This was another very easy card to make and increased my supply of Christmas cards for this season.  Have a wonderful day and I'll see you soon.
