Christmas Jenny

Hi everyone!  Today's card was created using the Christmas Jenny digital image from Karber Digital Images I won playing along with Karber Weekly.  Isn't she just darling!  I knew as soon as I saw her that I wanted to make a card paper piecing the stocking!

My card base is Chocolate Chip layered with PTI White then Whiting Street patterned paper. The shadow layer is Glee patterned paper layered on Chocolate Chip with red satin ribbon wrapped around it. I sewed a straight stitch along the edges of both patterned paper.

The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers. The stocking was paper pieced using Whiting Street patterned paper. I die cut and embossed the image using Standard Circles Small Nestabilites and layered it on to a slightly larger circle of Real Red then Chocolate Chip die cut using Classic Scallop Circles Nestabilities.

The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White and layered on to Chocolate Chip. To embellish the card I added a pretty bow finished with a white button threaded with DMC White and a clear rhinestone in each corner. Christmas Jenny's beautiful hat was finished with white liquid applique.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
