Happy Holiday Stocking

Just a quick post so I can link up to two challenges.  CAS-ual Fridays and Curtain Call have teamed up for this weeks challenge.  There's an inspiration photo that could inspire just about anyone, I think.

Isn't that a lovely scene?  I instantly latched onto the stockings and some of the colours for my card.  I got to use some new stamps too!  Michaels had a great deal on their $1.50 stamps.  9 for $5.94.  That's $0.66 each!  Couldn't pass it up.  Got some great Christmas images that I'm sure will be showing up here soon.  :-). Anyway, here's my card...

The stocking and sentiment are the Michaels stamps.  I stamped the stocking in Aqua (Color Box) on kraft paper (this muted the colour somewhat which I wanted) and embossed in clear (Stampendous).  I used a white gel pen to whiten the snowflake and lines.  I fussy cut it out and added some glitter snow (Aleene's).  On a kraft panel I stamped the sentiment and embossed in white (Stampendous).  I layered the panel on some medium aqua paper then on a white card base.  I added the stocking with foam dots and then added a wire candy cane and candy embellishment to look like it was coming out of the stocking.  I am quite pleased with the results.  :-)

Hmmm, was that a quick post?  Not really.  Oh well.  LOL.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day (or evening, depending where you are)!
