Paper, Glitter and Christmas 2 ...

.... I'm back with my second card using design paper and glitter and a decorated inside for this week's 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - 52CCT03-13,  and I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! - CTS12 for the layout.


Stamps: My Favourite Things - Stitched Stockings; Waltzingmouse - Compliments of the Season
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand, Gumball Green
Dies: Die-namics - Stocking Trio; Spellbinders - Labels 18 (S4-310) # 4 & 5
Accessories: SU design paper - Be of Good Cheer; SU Glitter - Dazzling Diamonds; Martha Stewart Glitter - Coarse Crystal; SU Card - Very Vanilla



I had a few stockings left over from my earlier card and decided to make another card using them up.  I turned the sketch through 90° so that I could hang the stockings from the mantle!!  I attached two of the stockings directly to the card base, but added some dimensional tape to the third.  I used both sides of the design paper on this card.  I carried the green on with some green elements on the stockings and a simple sentiment in the corner of the card. For the inside I used Spellbinder Labels 18 dies to cut a backing panel and a panel for the sentiment.  I've also taken a close-up of the stockings to show the different glitters used - fine on the dotty stocking and chunky on the top of the texty stocking.

That's all for now - I've had a fun morning playing in my craft room and now I'd better make a start on some of the ironing.  Before I go, thanks so much for the lovely comments on my photos.  There's so much to learn, but I'm having fun.  Bye!!

Cute Christmas card Deb! Love the MFT stockings and the cheerful color combination!

Vicky Hayes said...

I enjoyed the Christmas card in your last post but this is my favourite. I think I love groups of three stockings hanging up, not just because of the design 'rule of three' but also because I have three children who hang their stockings in front of the fireplace each year! That ironing will be keeping you warm! Vicky x
