As I mentioned on yesterday’s post, my project went into a direction that I had not planned on yesterday. I had die cut several Christmas stockings and assembled the pieces but once my project evolved they no longer were viable for that project.
So I guess you could say I had a head start on today’s project, assuming I could work out a way to use the stockings that I had cut and assembled into a card design. I knew what I wanted, just not how to get there. After a couple of hours of playing “shuffle the pieces”, I do believe I managed to create another simple yet rustic Christmas card. Do you agree – yes or no?
I was tempted to add some rhinestones but I am really trying to tame the bling beast in me and grasp the “less is more” concept.
The stockings are “hanging” from a single strand of the burlap ribbon that I stapled to the Wood Textures DSP that is attached to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock. The stockings are attached with mini glue dots and I made bows from single strands of the burlap ribbon and attached to the top corner of each stocking with a mini glue dot. I put a dimensional at the toe of each stocking to lift it up off the paper. The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso on a scrap piece of the same Wood Textures DSP that was used for the card front and was attached to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and attached to card front with dimensionals. The entire piece is attached to Crumb Cake cardstock base with dimensionals.
