The Stockings Were Hung

Friday, November 25, 2016
Hi friends! Happy Friday! I hope all my friends in the States had a fabulous Thanksgiving filled with love and laughter. My family did a two Thanksgiving dinner shuffle, which is not for the faint of heart, I tell ya! Seriously, so much amazing food, I don't think I'll need to eat for another month.  ;) Anyhow, I'm popping in today with another fun little Christmas card I made with the Viva la Verve November Sketch 2.

I started by stamping the stocking images from Jolly Jingles directly onto patterned paper, then hand cutting and sponging with distress inks. I colored the brims of each sock with a white gel pen, then stamped the sentiment on a die cut circle, adding some sponging around the edges here as well.

Next I layered three different pieces of paper for my pennant banners and a couple doilies underneath those.  I accented the top of the card with some vintage lace and a paper poinsettia that's been sitting in the stash for years.  I wanted to tie in the gold doily a bit more, so added a bit of chunky glass glitter to the flower.   Everything is on a base of cream cardstock embossed with snowflakes and sponged lightly with distress inks.
