and the inside:
This could have been an easy stamp job, but I decided, after cutting the red panel to size, to mask a very thin border around the bottom of the card base to line up with the edges of the panel. After randomly stamping two cats and paw prints, I removed the masks. I masked off the 'merry' from the Christmas stamp, stamped the rest of the sentiment, and heat embossed in gold. It's adhered with foam squares. Another sentiment finishes the inside.
I hope all who celebrated had a very Merry Christmas, and wish a Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa to those who are enjoying your holiday! I'm hoping to get at least one more post in before the new year, but just in case, I wish all the best to you for a happy and healthy 2017!
