Christmas Stockings in Non-Traditional Colors

October 21, 2014

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

My card base is Peanut Cluster (Bazzill), which is also a non-traditional Christmas color.;) The main panel was stamped the Fresh Cut Pebble pattern (Hero Arts) in Soft Sand ink (Hero Arts) and was cut out with a Stitched Rectangle die (Lil' Inker Designs). The sentiment is from the Swanky Snowdudes set (Paper Smooches). The smaller rectangle panel was cut out from Hot Fudge CS (MFT).
I used the Stocking Dies (Paper Smooches) to cut out the stockings. Love the whimsical shape! I added a few sequins and rhinestones to embellish them.

I'm also entering this card to this weeks Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge (Anything Goes).

Thank you for visiting!
