3D Friday Peek-a-boo card

Well I'm cutting it close but I do have a 3D project today!! This is a little cand card holder I made after finding the tutorial on SCS. It's called a Peek a boo treat holder. And I used a stamp set that I think is just the cutest set ever! I just love the little mouse in the tea cup. You can find him in a stamp set called "Cup of Stuff" from The Greeting Farm.

I thought the cup needed to be more antique looking so I used Crackle Accents (it's a glaze that cracks all on it's own as it dries). It's really cool stuff, easy to use and works perfectly. Only problem is that I do not have the proper ink and so the ink bleed. Ugh! It's so frustrating!

Hope you like it dispite the bleeding!


Supplies:Stamps-Cup of Stuff:The Greeting Farm, Cardstock:CTMH, Crackle:Inkssentials (Ranger), Oval and scallop:Nestablilities, Paper-Making Memories Paperie, Verse stamp:Inkadinkado
