Hang Your Stocking Christmas Card

This was a very fun card to make.  I wanted my background smooth but yet I wanted some color on it.  So I had stamped the snowflakes from the "Hang Your Stocking" set but I didn't think it was enough color. So I took a misting bottle and added rubbing alcohol and some Emerald Green inker.  I shook it up until it was mixed well.  I sprayed the paper and let it dry.  It was just enough of a splash of green to give the background the bit of color I was hoping for.  Click on the photo to see a closer view.

Next I worked on the strips of decorative paper.  I cut a strip and tore the ends. I taped it in place on the card. Then I worked up the cut doily piece.  I attached the doily to the paper strip and it was set in place with Dimensionals.  

I die cut the stocking using the glitter paper.  The leaves and berries were stamped and then die cut. 

The words were stamped using the Emerald Green ink pad. It was die cut and taped to a scalloped die cut circle of Real Red card stock.  The sparkly snowflake was taken from a red stocking I had die cut.  I save all the pieces from these die cuts!!!  Some I will be putting in recycling, but not yet!!!  Anyway, the words were set in place with Dimensionals.

I added some enamel shapes to the card for a little more bling and then I called it done!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
