Christmas Stocking


Hi everyone!  I really love the green colors in this patterned paper and paired it with all the metallic gold embellishments I could find to bring out the golden stars in the pattern.  The cute image is from the Christmas Cuties digital stamp set by Clear Dollar Stamps.


My card base is Bravo Burgundy layered with White Cardstock then Evergreen Patterned Paper stitched around the edges. Using the Labels Seventeen Nestabilities I die cut and embossed a piece of Bravo Burgundy to shadow the image. Next I wrapped Gold Metallic Mesh around the card base. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers then die cut and embossed using the same nestabilities. To embellish the card I added a pretty white bow and a metallic gold dew drop in each corner of the card base.

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