CAS Christmas: Stocking

Hi, there!  Quick post for a quick card today.  Just playing along in the CAS Christmas Card Challenge with the prompt of "Stocking".

I pulled out one of my pre-made Prima Fairy Flora card bases thinking I could probably make it work for Christmas.  Remember a while back I finished off that paper pad by designing 11 card bases.  Well, it sure helped.  I colored and cut the stocking, stamped the sentiment, hung the stocking with a little glue and a pink rhinestone and it was done!




The stamp set is Power Poppy's Poinsettia from 2014.  Still pretty!

Inside I cut a strip from one of the scraps I saved just for this purpose.




Total Christmas cards so far this year:  18




Thank you, CAS Christmas team!  Wishing everyone a happy weekend!



Stamps:  Power Poppy Poinsettia clear stamp set  Paper:  X-Press It Blending Card for coloring, Neenah Classic Crest Super Smooth Solar White for card base, Prima Fairy Flora designer paper  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics for coloring  Accessories:  Rhinestone, Taylored Expressions Stitched Rectangle Stacklets

What a nice surprise to see another beautiful creation from you first thing this morning. I love it - CAS! Your precut papers worked perfecting, and your stocking is lovely, also love how you added a strip of the paper inside to finish this off. This is one of my favourite Christmas sets from PP. Yikes, I only have 1 Christmas card made, I need to get on this soon. Thanks for inspiring me today. Heading out birding soon, but I have 4 masculine b-day cards needed by first week of June for our family 'guy' June birthday get-together, along with Father's Day! Wishing you a wonderful day & weekend- enjoy your outdoor time :)!

I wouldn't have thought to use those colors on a Christmas stocking but it is GORGEOUS! Love your design too ... very inspirational! Well done!

Margaret said...

Simply gorgeous! What great colors. Fun that you already had that card base done.

I would say your premade background was just perfect for this Christmas card, your coloring of the stocking worked perfectly with it, and like how you added it to the inside too! Beautiful!

What a great idea making all those card bases. I love the stocking in those colors. WOW - #18!! Good for you!! Have a great weekend!

I am such a fan of pink and vintage for Christmas, and this card has both. Such gorgeous patterns and the stocking with the sweet flowers is so pretty. You are on such a roll with your cards, all of them, but especially for Christmas. Good for you!

Bonnie said...

I'm beginning to wonder why I'm not thinking Christmas cards, too? I could certainly stand to make some now. Your stocking is so dimensional...it looks almost 3-dimensional! Beautiful colors...and the panels really work.
