I cut out these stockings several days ago with trying to get rid of my OLD Christmas/winter themed papers. (I don't even remember where these papers are from.) Then I had neglected them because I didn't get a good idea for a layout. But this weeks Merry Monday Challenge gave me a cue to use them. The challenge theme is "Non-Traditional Christmas Colors"!:D
For the sentiment panel I die cut two rounded rectangles from Aqua Mist CS (PTI) and White CS using a die from the Blueprints 14 Die-namics (MFT). I cut off the bottom edge of the white panel using a edger punch. After I stamped and silver embossed the sentiment, which is from the Peace On Earth set (SSS), I glued those panels together.
I thought that this card needed one more accent of color, so I decided to add a circle panel, which was die cut from a wood grain patterned paper, behind the sentiment panel.
I added several rhinestones to finish off the card.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
I stamped the Santa and the little girl onto a piece of watercolor paper in Espresso ink (Versa Craft), then heat set them. (The reason I use this ink when I watercolor stamped images is that it gets to be water resistant once you heat set.)
