Christmas Stockings Card

It's time for a new Jingle Belles Challenge.  The above stockings photo is the inspiration for this challenge.  I had a new stamp set by Concord and 9th (Merry Mantle) which was perfect.  As luck would have it, I found a brick pattern stencil in my stash which I inked with Distress Oxide ink pads on a white card stock panel.  After inking the stockings image, I colored it with the same colors as the stocking in the inspiration photo.  I fussy cut the stockings out and adhered to the card panel along with a stamped mantel and die cut greenery (from Momento Fireplace die set).  The sentiment is from the Merry Mantle set.  I added a light teal colored bowed to the top left of the greenery on the mantle to mimic the photo.  This card was easy plus FUN.  Hope all of you have a nice weekend planned.  We are trying to watch all the best picture nominees before the Oscars are aired.  I finished The Power of the Dog book this afternoon so we have plans to watch the movie on Netflix tonight.  Exciting times at our house I tell ya (wink)!!!!!  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty!

Oh my word, could there be a more perfect stamp ... and your coloring is perfection too. I love that you're watching the movies (and reading the book) ... a bit jealous actually (we were just discussing going to see Licorice Pizza at the actual movie theatre tomorrow). Thanks so much for joining us at Jingle Belles.

Sounds like you are having fun at your house (movie watching). I love to read I'll have to check that book out from the library. Your card is so sweet and so in keeping with the photo. Great job in every way! Love it!
