My first holiday card for 2014. Maybe, just maybe, this year I will make cards a bit at a time instead of waiting til the last two weeks before Christmas. I always seem to have a difficult time though, making wintery cards in the summer. Maybe because I get sick of making wintery cards all winter.
Anyhoo….I still had this die cut stocking sitting on my table and I didn’t want to throw it away. So stamped it up, colored it, added a bow stamp, the scrap of bough left over from one of the other cards today and a scrap of designer paper.
For the embossed back ground, I very carefully laid it in my embossing folder and then ran it partially through. I opened it and adjusted the piece so I could get the frame size to fit this small piece of card stock and partially ran it through from the other side. It worked. I am entering this in two challenges. Simon Says Emboss it and ABC Christmas-anything Christmas
