Stocking Card Concept



Hi friends! It's time for a brand new Card Concept challenge to inspire you!  I loved the inspiration graphic, as I've been wishing for a typewriter that looks like this one for many years.  Aqua and pink are such a lovely combination, I'm sure there will be a feast of fabulous creations in the lineup this challenge!

It's also sneaky peek week at Verve, so I just *had* to use the new Jolly Jingles set we're peeking today. The Sweet Peppermint line from Prima just arrived and was the perfect start to this mixed media collage style Christmas card.



I started by collaging three different torn strips of patterned paper onto a 4 x 5.25" piece of cardstock with matte medium.  I added a few bits of washit tape here and there and then fingerpainted on some gesso to blend them all together.  Next I cut the bingo card and the let there be peace on earth panels from patterned paper, distressing the edges and adding a bit of gesso as well.


The stocking is from the soon to be released Jolly Jingles stamp set and I stamped it on the aqua paper, then painted the top portion with gesso and dumped on a bit of glitter, then when it was dry cut with the coordinating die from the Winter Friends Die Set.  To tie in the typewriter image I stamped the stockings were hung sentiment (also from Jolly Jingles) on vellum, then tore the sides down to the size I needed.  I layered everything together, using a fun clothespin embellishment I recently picked up at Tuesday Morning, adding some Nuvo crystal drops for a bit of shimmer.  To my collage, I added some random snowflakes and flowers, all brushed with gesso and sprinkled with glitter.  To finish off, I added the merry christmas sentiment, stamped with some typewriter font Pegz stamp (also a find at Tuesday Morning).

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to hop on over to The Card Concept blog to see what the other designers have cooked up to inspire you today.
