One Layer Stocking for LIM and Memory Box
still more Christmas cards... I know. I am getting tired of them and I am running our of ideas... I wanted to play with Less is More, because I love to make one layer cards. My problem was the stocking... the few I had in my enormous pile of stamps I did not like one little bit...
So I had to improvise. Took that cute Penny Black stamp, where Hedgie is peeking out of a boot and masked off the boot and them drew it into a stocking. It worked! I "hung" the stocking on a string and added the little sentiment (ancient Inkadinkadoo set). the little stars in the stocking a tiny W&W stamps.
Linking up with:
Penny Black Saturday challenge - Christmas/Holidays
Penny Black and More challenge - anything goes
And now my second card:
I made that for this month Memory Box challenge - Season's Greetings.
Actually the black cut out sheet is a left over from an Advent calendar I made for my kids. I know I have promised to show it here on my blog, but I have not yet gotten around to it. Anyhow memory Box has those cute little ornament numbers, some of which I used on THIS and on THIS card. Perfect for an Advent calendar. And why throw away the negative die cuts?
I spritzed the background with various inks. I filled in some of the cut outs with silver glitter baubles and added some sequins.
Pretty easy - I have another card like this coming up....
