The Stockings Were Hung

The Challenge at Merry Monday this week is all about The Night Before Christmas - so I immediately thought of the line "the stocking were hung by the chimney with care" and the Avery Elle stamp set. Here is what I came up with:

For both cards, I stamped the images onto white cardstock and coloured with Copics. For the first one, I simply die cut the panel and added it to a shimmery pink card. I white embossed the greeting and popped it up with foam tape. For the second card, I used some embossing paste and a brick stencil to add some texture to the card base. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled it with glitter to give it some shimmer. I fussy cut the stocking, die cut a frame and adhered them to the card front with some foam tape.

I will link these cards to:

Thanks for stopping by!
