Merry Monday Challenge #24 came out yesterday and I just knew as I saw it exactly what I wanted to do.
Fast forward to today... my son is more interested in the food and the big gifts :o) but my daughter really loves the stocking part like me. So I designed this stocking with her sweet self in mind. Santa doesn't make it to our house though until Christmas morning and there have been no fun rides in the car to try to find him - hmmm I might have to change that this year...
I used the retired stocking builder punch and coordinating stamp set from last Christmas season's mini catalog. The colors of the stocking are two of the NEW In-colors called Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple. I sponged some Soft Suede ink over the two embossed pieces give them some more definition. The sentiment stamped in Raspberry Ripple from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set which coordinates quite nicely with the NEW Bitty Banners framelits dies.
I debated with myself about adding a bough of branches across the top of the mantel - but utlimately decided to keep it very clean and simple. Hope you like this card - thanks so much for stopping by, I'm sure glad that you did! Hugs!
