Waltzingmouse and Moxie Fab Stamp of Approval!

Yikes!  Have you seen the Moxie Fab World today??   Cath Edvalson is showcasing Waltzingmouse holiday stamps!
In honor of the day I made a card using two of the featured sets:
I cut an opening in the card with an Oval Nestability, then embossed the opening with a larger Oval.  I inked around the edges with white craft ink just to highlight the embossing a bit.

Here's the inside when you open the card.
The Santa and 'No Peeking' stamps are from Santa's Coming to Town.  The square poinsettia and Merry Christmas are from Nordic Winter.

This is also my Christmas card for the Waltzingmouse Forum Monthly Christmas Card Challenge -  to make a no layer card.  Come join this fun challenge in the WMS Forum!  What a great feeling to have all of my Christmas cards made and ready to mail!  We'll be starting all over again in January!

And now - hurry over to the Moxie Fab World and check out the Waltzingmouse post - that's where I'm going!!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Santa's Coming to Town, Nordic Winter
Paper:  Pure Poppy - PTI
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Whisper White Craft Ink - SU
Accessories:  Oval Nestabilities, Rhinestones - Kaiser, Q-tip (to apply the Craft ink)

I love that your NO PEEKING is set inside of a peeking window. Great project and so cleverly executed. Merry Christmas, Julia!

Ha, ha--what a cute idea to have the Santa peeking out of a window with the sentiment No Peeking! I like cards that show this wry sense of humor. Very cute!
