CPS198 - Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!!  Hope you are enjoying your holiday festivities! 

I needed a few last minute Christmas cards, so I whipped this first one up using PTI's Stocking Prints images and die.  The stocking patterned paper is Creative Imaginations Winter Woodland Stockings paper and the rust and Kraft stripe and polka dot papers are all from Canvas Corp.  The mini clothespins are from Creative Impressions and were colored with a Copic Marker.

The layout for this first card is based on this week's sketch from Card Positioning Systems (CPS198).  The sketch shows three elements, but I couldn't fit three stockings, so I went with two.  They are a little higher than the ones on the sketch, but I wanted to 'hang' them with the ones on the patterned paper....creative license, I guess!

The second card uses another section of the same stocking paper, along with another section that I border punched for a mat.  To stamp the stockings, I used Adirondack's Rust, Terra Cotta and Espresso inks and the sentiments were stamped with Versamark and Espresso and embossed with clear embossing powder.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!!  Thanks for stopping by!
