Now for a bit about my project.

I started out by coloring the Elf Peeker with Copic markers.  I added Imagination glitter to his belt buckle and Evening Glow glitter to the bells on his hat. Waterscape glitter accents the snow falling around him.

Moss Green embossing powder was applied to the edges of the green panel behind the image using the Distress Embossing Technique.  (Apply VersaMark around the edges using a sponge dauber, cover with your favorite embossing powder and heat set.)  The same technique was also used around the card base, but with Waterscape glitter.

An Impression Obsession die (Slider Frame die) was used to create the sentiment.  After measuring for the length of my pull-out piece, I stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set with VersaFine (Black) and heat set it with Clear embossing powder.  I added a brad at the end to make pulling it out easier.  I also used the Distress Embossed Technique and more Moss Green embossing powder around the edges of the pull out.

I added a sticker that I have had in my stash for years to the end of the pull out and added a bit of Peanut Butter embossing powder to the cookie chips. 

Once you pull the slider piece out completely, it reveals the rest of my sentiment.  I also stamped this sentiment with VersaFine (Black) and heat set it with Clear embossing powder.

Now it's time to hop on over to see what fun project Chris has created for you.  Don't forget to leave a comment on each of the Designers' blogs in order to be eligible to receive ALL of the rubber stamp sets revealed this month.  (It is checked for compliance๐Ÿ˜€.)

Such an adorable little character! We must have both been attracted to his mischievous character, Anne, since I used this little guy as well. Your happy, festive papers look fantastic, and I especially like the brick wall you made! Great interactive card. hugs, de
