Christmas stocking card in red and brown

Hello and welcome.

It’s great to be joining the lovely design team at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown again this week, this time for a colour challenge, where we’ve been challenged to use red and brown together on a card…

I chose to use cherry cobbler and crumb cake cardstock by Stampin’ Up, and a white card base.

The Christmas stocking die by Sizzix was the perfect size for my slimline card.  I stamped the sentiments from Itty Bitty Christmas and So Many Stars stamp sets in early espresso ink, and also lightly sponged the edges of the small tag in the same colour.

Cherry cobbler twine added the perfect hanging opportunity for the stocking, and a tiny wooden close peg helped hang it up, just in time for Santa!

I hope you’ve been inspired to join in the colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown – there are only 11 weeks to the big day!

Enjoy your weekend

Christmas stocking

Hi, and welcome. I hope you’re enjoying your day.

We have a new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week – to use a wood background…

Looking through my stash of dsp, I thought this wood effect paper would be perfect …

I couldn’t resist this Christmas stocking die set by Sizzix, which is on offer on their website at the moment. It looks so pretty in cherry cobbler and whisper white, with sprigs in old olive cardstock cut with the Tim Holtz Holiday Greens die set.

I love this verse from the More Merry Messages stamp set. Stamped in black stazon ink onto whisper white card, then the edges distressed with scissors.

I added a glittery snowflake, and a tiny heart made from paper clay.

I hope you like my card for this week and you’re inspired to join us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

Enjoy your weekend.
