Christmas Stocking

Happy Saturday, Fellow Crafters!

Today I’m sharing a simple but fun holiday card that uses the paper piecing technique.  I used the Merry Christmas Stocking Stamp Set from #AJVD using Distress Oxide Ink in Hickory Smoke.  I stamped the pretty snowflake in a repeated pattern using the same ink on dark grey cardstock.

In this case, I wanted the attention to go to the cute stocking from the Christmas Stocking Stamp Set. So, the paper piecing did just that. I chose a small remaining piece of paper from my stash and it’s bold and makes a statement.  Super pretty and easy to do.

Next, I colored the bow of the stocking using my Spectrum Noir markers in 3 shades of CR2, CR5 and CR6 with very little shading. I also added some faux hand stitched lines around the edges of the grey cardstock with my gold star dust glitter Sakura pen to add more interest.  I finished it off by adding some little dots in the same glitter pen.  I love how this turned out!
