Jolly Friends

merrychristmasThis is Jolly Friends meets Hang Your Stocking.  And this one is another ‘reject’ card.  I had actually made this for the SUO challenge earlier this month and decided that it was not elegant enough for the challenge but I did really like it and wanted to share it with all of you!

I really LOVE the look of the Merry Christmas from the Hang Your Stocking set and I wanted to also use the Stitched Shapes framelits – LOVE these!  So this is really a nice easy card!  Oh…it’s hard to see from the photo but the hat is all gold embossed pieces!

Here’s the details…

  • Cherry Cobbler – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, run through the Softly Falling Embossing Folder, add to card front
  • Gold Glimmer – 1/4 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out stitched oval, stamp greeting using Cherry Cobbler, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp hat, trim and pompom using Versamark, gold emboss and punch out, layer and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp holly using Garden Green and Holly using Cherry Cobbler, cut out with matching framelits, layer and add to hat to finish off

Hang Your Stocking

stocking2Sometimes simple is the BEST!  Lately because I have been so busy at school with some big projects, when I go to stamp it has to be quick and easy.  That’s where this card came from.

I needed a make and take for my stamp group and wanted to use the stocking bundle since one of the people in the group had already bought it.  But…I was running behind in designing things which is the way it seems to go and I came up with this.  I think it ended up being not just quick and easy but elegant!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Garden Green – 3 3/4 x 5, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, run through the Pine Bough Folder, stamp greeting in Cherry Cobbler, add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out solid stocking
  • Gold Foil – cut out filigree stocking, layer on solid Whisper White Stock, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – stamp bow outline in Momento Black and bow solid in Cherry Cobbler, stamp 2 of the large holly leaf outline in Momento Black and the large holly leaf solid in Garden Green, punch everything out, layer and add to card front

Yep…that’s all there is to it!
