Seriously Clean and Simple Stocking Card

I am glad that I am feeling "ready" with Christmas cards this month (thanks to so many Christmas challenges), because as Thanksgiving is over, I haven't even begun to take down fall decor, let alone get out the Christmas stuff!

But I am still having fun doing some Christmas cardmaking.  Here is a really really clean and simple card I made for some challenges.  


Sometimes it is fun to just use a really small image. I used colored pencils on this tiny dollar bin stocking.  I layered up some die cuts to create a fun little focal point.  


Supplies: Stamp is unknown but is a dollar bin acrylic stamp, Elle Studio Cheers sentiment stamp set, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Derwent Coloursoft colored pencils, Darice embossing folder, Cheery Lynn designs Inverted Scalloped circle die, Spellbinders circle dies, Avery Elle Wonky Stitches for the sentiment banner, Distress ink Twisted Citron, Queen and Co Goosebumps gems.

I would LOVE to participate in the following challenges:
Power Poppy Think Pink
November Rudolph Days
A Blog Named Hero Holiday Challenge


Thanks for stopping by! Are you feeling ready for the holidays?

    Yours is so pretty and I like you design!
    Hands are healing (slowly) so hope to get back into a blogging and visiting routine.

  16. Oh, I LOVE these pretty non-traditional Christmas colours Heidi! Such a cute design! Thank you for continuing to pop by my blog and leaving your sweet comments, it means a lot to me, especially now, when my blogging and visits are so sporadic! I'm hoping Mum will be strong enough for me to ease off a little next year and I can get back to blogging proper again! Have a lovely weekend! Hazel xx
