Quick and Easy Card

In early November Heather Summers posted THIS card along with a video.

I really liked the card and loved that it used the little mittens from the Winter Wishes stitched felt. I wanted to make quite a few of these cards, but only had six of the mittens. I decided that for the balance of the cards I would use pairs of stockings. I stamped the stockings with the Stitched Stockings stamp set and punched them out with the Stocking Builder punch.

Heather's card and the two cards featured in my photo are both embossed using the Snowburst embossing folder - both on the card base and for the oval surrounding the sentiment. I decided not to emboss the base card for the additional cards that I made. If I were to do more of these cards I would alter the size of the focal panel to 5 x 3 3/4 in order to see more of the embossing.

Hope you like them and thanks for stopping by.
