No peeking

Hello and welcome! I have a fun card to share, which was inspired by this month's Christmas muse, Cornelia Wenokor. I focused on the brick wall and the peeking element.

Above shows the card in opened position, but below is what the recipient will see when s/he receives the card.

Love this peekaboo window die that I bought last month (along with the butterfly stamps from my previous post) using a Pretty Pink Posh gift certificate that I won last December at Tracey McNeely's blog.

Soft stone cardstock - Papertrey Ink
Peekaboo window die - Pretty Pink Posh
Stitched rectangle die - Stitched bundle, Simon Says Stamp
Stencil - Stamperia (bought at a local store)
Aleene's True Snow - has a silken texture that is
very easy to apply in a very thin layer
through a stencil as flimsy as the one I used
Stamps - Tis the Season, Essentials by Ellen
Colouring medium - Spectrum Noir coloured pencils
Foam tape - Simon Says Stamp

Below is Cornelia's fun card that inspired mine
