Christmas Stocking

Sorry I've been such a bad blogger lately. Work and getting ready for our friends who are coming to visit this coming weekend have gotten in the way of card making and blogging lately! But I dug around my stash and found this little Christmas card I made last month and never posted. It is a simple card that was made using Papertrey Ink's Stocking Prints set and Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly Christmas paper. No Copics on this one!

I stamped the stocking and its top band two times using PTI's Ocean Tides ink. I went over the stamped damask design with a clear Spica pen and used a red Spica pen for the stitching. You can see the fine glitter in this closeup (click on the photo to see it larger). I cut out the second stocking and band and mounted them on top of the first one with foam tape. The panel was cut out using a Labels Five Nestabilities die and the background was sponged with PTI's Vintage Touch Tea Dye duo inks.

The sentiment is from the Mega Mixed Messages set and was stamped with Scarlet Jewel ink and the ribbon and button are both Scarlet Jewel as well.

The sentiment on the inside is from the Tree Trimming Trio set and was also stamped with Ocean Tides. I added a strip of the paper I used on the front, wrapped it with some twine and added another Memory Box rhinestone snowflake.

Hope your week is going well! Thanks for stopping by!
