12/5 Peek-a-Boo Christmas Card


I LOVE this embossing folder called Northern Flurry. I have to say, here in MN, we've been getting more than flurries, though!! I recently designed this sweet and easy card as an invitation for a Christmas party that I am hosting this year. It was super fun to make and features a cute little peek-a-boo. You can take your pick of Christmas Cheer to put in the peek-a-boo. The stamp set called Jolly Bingo Bits has 24 perfectly sized peek-a-boo stamps. I selected the Reindeer, but a Christmas wreath, Christmas stocking or even a pair of mittens would look just as cute peeking through the ornament. Below you can see the card partially opened so you can see just how the peek-a-boo portion works.

Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies that I used to create this card:

Oh, this is so cute and clever! Love the peek-a-boo, the embossing but I really love the ribbon detail. Fantastic!
