Stuffed Stocking from Santa

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Frosted Window Embossing Folder. I went around the edges, first with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide and then with Fired Brick Distress Oxide using a Smoothie. I matted onto Brunswick Green Card, Rich Rich Card and Coconut White Card.

I stamped one of the stockings from the Woodware The Stuffed Stockings Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Onyx Black Versafine Ink and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Matt Clear Embossing Powder. I also stamped the little tag in the same stamp set. I stamped and embossed the stocking twice more - on 2 different papers from Lisa Horton's Christmas Wishes Paper Pad.

I coloured the toys in the stocking using various Distress Oxides - Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Fired Brick and Broken China by swiping some ink onto my Craft Sheet and picking it up with a Water Brush. I cut the stocking and the tag out leaving a thin white border. I cut the stocking pieces out of the patterned papers and added them to my main image.

I cut dies #1, #3 and #4 together from Sue Wilson's Holly Lattice Frame Die Set out of patterned paper and die #5 from the same set out of another paper. I glued the 2 die cuts together and added my stocking and tag using Foam Pads. I added a little Glossy Accents to the car windows.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Little Festive Branch Stamp Set using Versafine Ink and embossed with Matt Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Stitched Flags and cut the next sized die out of some of the red patterned paper used before.

I completed my card by adding an 8mm White Pearl to the corners.

Thanks for stopping by.
