A double post day!

I very rarely post twice in one day but as I said earlier, we aren't doing our Thanksgiving until tomorrow so I had some create time today and wanted to share this simple but super cute Christmas card I made using the Its a Stretch set.

My card base is Whisper White scored on the top. I layered over this Real Red Textured cardstock. I stamped my stocking image in Jet Black Stazon on Whisper White, Read Red Textured, and Old Olive Textured cardstock and used my Paper Snips to paper piece the various parts of the stocking. I love paper piecing...although it can take some time it gives a different effect of just coloring, especially with the textured cardstock. To give the white areas of the stocking more "ooph" I added Crystal Effects (also on the ornament to give it some dimension!) I matted my stocking on Old Olive after the Crystal Effects had dried and adhered to the card base over a piece of Whisper White Satin Ribbon. I love the contrast of texture between the satin ribbon and all the textured cardstock!
