Merry Christmas!


Hello there, I just wanted to pop in to share these trio of Christmas cards. I was going to make one card with all three stockings but then decided that it might be more fun to make three cards and use one stocking in each...and it was fun. I cut the stocking with the Silhouette and then used three different Cuttlebug embossing folders for each to to have a slightly different texture.


All the stamps are from the Ornate Ornaments (Lawn Fawn) stamp set. Really enjoyed using those pine branches, The little berries I drew myself with Prisma coloring pencils.


I was not sure how I was going to use the third stocking and then I saw this CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge # 2 here below and was inspired, it is kind of similar to my first card...but not really. I wanted to really keep to the sketch in more of a less is more kind of way. I really loved that this sentiment nested nicely within when stamped in two lines, the sentiment really is a one liner but like I said I wanted to keep to the sketch. What do you know I discover that I can use this sentiment this way too just by challenging my self with the sketch and what I had to work with. Love it!


Thanks for stopping by. I hope that you get crafty and come to play with us too.
