jolly stockings...


Using images from Paper Smooches again I stamped the stockings from Paper Smooches “All Yule Need” onto white card stock with Memento rich cocoa ink and colored them with Copic markers.
The base card is beige checked card stock that I folded in half then die cut the fireplace opening with an oval die.
Under this I applied brown check card stock.
I trimmed the A2 size card on the sides and applied a strip of the brown check card stock for a mantle.
I trimmed out the stockings and glue dotted them to the “mantle”.
To finish I stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches “Christmas Sampler” with the same ink.
