Merry Christmas

My first card today was created for the latest Addicted To Stamps And More challenge. To create my holiday themed card I started by layering some red cardstock from Stampin' UP onto my white card base and then layered some pretty patterned paper from the American Crafts Jolly 6x6 paper pad on top. I then die cut a scalloped edge rectangle panel using a Gina Marie die and popped it up off of the card using some 3M foam tape. I stamped the stocking image from Hero Arts K5254 wooden stamp directly onto the panel and colored the ribbon in using my Uni-ball Signo white gel pen for some nice contrast. I then stamped the image again onto some Copic-friendly cardstock, colored the images using my alcohol markers, fussy cut them, and went around the edges of each one using my Memento tuxedo black dual tip marker for a nice clean die cut look. I added a few details using my white gel pen and then popped the stockings up off of the card using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. For the final touch I stamped the sentiment from the Papertrey Ink Winter Snow Globe stamp set at the top of the panel. I hope you like this whimsical and fun little card!
