MTSC #48 and Stocking Gift Card Holder!

Hello!  I made this card yesterday, but I'm just now getting it posted!  I just love Mercy's sketches, and couldn't wait to play with one of my new PTI stamp sets~Christmas Friends!  I was very drawn to the beautiful flourishes in this set, and the birds are so cute too!  I paired it with PTI Signature Christmas for the sentiment and Basic Grey Wassail dp. 

These adorable Stocking Gift Card Holders were the Technique Lover's Challenge on SCS today.  Claire Brennan made a super easy template for these, and I will definitely be making more!!!  For the outside I used PTI Aqua Mist cs and Rustic Snowflake dp.  The sentiment is from the SU Great Friend set, and the snowflakes were cut with my Spellbinders Shapeabilities Snowflake Wonder dies. 

I stamped the inside with another sentiment from PTI's Signature Christmas set, and stamped the poinsettia from Verve's O Christmas Tree set.  That's it for me!  Thank you so much for stopping by today :)

Kerri, that is just too cute! I love your embossing - really makes it stand out with the different colored toe and heel portion. Very lovely with the snowflake and button like that - just marvelous!

Cheryl said...

Ok Kerri, what's your secret? How are you always right-on with which images, papers and embellies to use? LOL I could sit for hours in my scrap room just 'preparing' LOL.

Seriously though, I love both of these! Great take on the MTSC challenge, and that stocking? ADORABLE!!!
