Week 2 = stocking
I decided to just go for it with the Tidings and Trimmings bundle and create some cards using the matching dsp and the stamps and dies from the set.
I had lots of fun then delving in the gems box and the ribbons basket to find some bits and pieces to embellish and add texture.
I kept to a simple colour scheme… Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand. I also added gold embossing and did die cut some of the sentiments using the Stitched framelits and the Seasonal Frames too.
I stamped the two different stocking stamps in lots of different colour ways and did a bit of colouring in on some too.
And then had fun chopping papers up and matting and layering. I used 3 sheets of the 6×6 in total and made 8 5×5 cards. I also embossed a couple of the card blanks using my new favourite embossing folder: timeworn type.
Just love these … those stockings are so cute and the little bow and the foliage in the set help finish it off perfectly.
Plus love the sentiments and the ones you can create into strips are PERFECT !
So this was my stocking selection for you. A quick reminder that you do not need to make multiple cards to join in … I just love doing this when making Christmas cards as although they are all different they create little sets and I often end up gifting these to my parents and my aunties.
But please do join in … and if you do, use the tag #christmascard2021IFCchallenge so I can find your creations… or comment below!
