CASE-ing Christmas: The Stockings Were Hung...


Hi, all!  Welcome to another post for a new weekly challenge at CASE-ing Christmas! Take a peek at this week's CASE card...

Card by DT member Cohenna.

I just ADORE this fun stocking card, don't you?!  SO much to be inspired by!  I was inspired by the stocking, of course, as well as the colors.  I went a little overboard and decided to create a cozy scene on my card this week.  Come and take a peek...


The first step in making this card was to heat emboss the stocking sentiment with red glittery embossing powder from Sweet Stamps.  This image is by Inkadinkado.  I added some liquid pearl for some subtler shine, texture, and color.


Next, I created a fireplace.  This was pretty easy, just cut out some kraft paper, dry emboss it, sponge it, cut out a square, add a "mantel", and create a fire with punches.


The last step was to just layer these pieces onto a patterned paper background.  I chose a patterned paper that looked like worn wall paper.  I think it looks super fun!  What do you think?  I hope you leave me a comment to let me know! :)



That's all for me today, friends!  I hope you come and play along with us at CASE-ing Christmas!  I love seeing all your amazing creations!  I also hope that you leave a little bit of love with the other gals who have CASEd this card--they have stunning creations!  HUGS and MERRY stamping to you all! :)

Hi Mynn

Love that stamp and the fab heat embossing, and love the cosy fireplace although here no fires are better over Christmas. We have Christmas in Summertime here. Megan
