Hi there and thanks for stopping by today! I have a card to share with you today for the Holly and Ivy Challenge.
This was a fun little make for me! I had kept all the MacKenzie tartan ribbon from the flower arrangements of my eldest son, Struan's wedding in October, 2018. Maybe I'll have to keep this one for them!
I cut out the stockings using the Memory Box Stockings die, after backing it with double sided tape.
Aren't these the cutest?
I then die cut the cuffs with double sided adhesive also.
I removed the backing off the tape and then applied flockings, Imperial Blue, Grass Green and Snow White flocking.
Next step was to die cut the ribbons from Gold metallic cardstock. Since I was going to have a gold layer to the finished card, I die cut the ribbons from the center of the card piece, so as to not waste any cardstock!
Now to create my mantel! I found some wood grain cardstock in my stash and so attached that to the brick embossed panel. Then I placed all the stockings and their ribbons before attaching them to the card.
The fuzzy cuffs were mounted on top of the ribbon and stockings with mounting tape. I poked a hole through each of the ribbons bows and put a tiny eyelet for a nail on the mantel.
The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Sentiment Stamp Set CL343, I decided on Peace Love and Joy! I stamped in Versamark ink and then applied White Detail embossing powder.
This was cut out and layered to the panel, which was then layered to the white card base to finish off my card for today!
