'Twas the Night Before Christmas

Let the excitement begin! I can't believe it is Christmas Eve already.  Before I get started on making hors d'oeuvres and preparing the prime rib, I have another card to share with you.  

On a piece of Kromekote glossy paper I stamped the images in StazOn Black.  I created a mask for the moon by cutting a piece of paper with a small classic circle die.  The background was sponged in Adirondack Cloudy Blue, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist and Adirondack Denim.  After letting it dry and keeping the mask on I spritzed the paper with Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist.  The corners were rounded and the image was mounted to a piece of Night of Navy.  White organdy ribbon was wrapped around the layers with a triple loop bow and silver glittered star brad.

Peace was cut from Marina Mist paper using the Spellbinders peace sentiment.  It was glued to the front of the card to finish it off.

The inside of the card is a combination of Scalloped Labels One & Labels One.  The sentiment was stamped in Marina Mist and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The branches were done in StazOn Black.   

I'm off to prepare some things in the kitchen.  Michael went to work this morning so it's just Cheops and I.  I'll be back a little later to visit you.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!!!
