Christmas Stocking...........

This weeks challenge over at Bah Humbug is Christmas Stockings which may or may not be a coincidence as for my spot prize I received some Christmas die cuts (with Christmas stockings included) and some huge gems plus a lovely handmade card - whose a lucky girl then?  lol

I just had to use some of my spot prize for this card.  I started off with an A5 red card which I put through my Big Shot in a Papermania embossing folder so the left hand side of the card got embossed.  I added a piece of My Mind's Eye card to the right hand side and added some red and white ribbon.  I embossed some gold mirri using the same embossing folder and used a Martha Steward corner punch.  A piece of red foiled holly card was put across the middle of the mirri card and three of the Christmas stockings added using foam pads.  I tied three ribbons to top the stockings.  The sentiment is from a Papermania clear stamp set (Silent Night) and to finish off I used some of the smaller gems that I received in my spot prize.

Thanks again to Irene, Ann and Max over at Bah Humbug for all these great challenges and for my goodie parcle.

  3. What a coincidence Karen - so pleased you were able to use your wee prize for this week's challenge. Gold and red are always going to work well together and your embossing adds that extra touch.
