"The stockings were hung...

...by the chimney with care!" And i should know, I was the one that hung them! this super fun card features DRS Designs stamps. I stamped the fireplace on white cardstock and colored it in with copic markers. I added stickles for the flames on the logs and on the candles. I cut out the image and adhered it to the River Rock CS from SU. Before I adhered the fireplace, I stamped the easy star background from DRS.

I stamped 3 little stockings and water colored them in. Then I used liquid applique for the cuff and used the heat tool to puff them up! They look so fluffy and they are ready to be filled with Christmas treats. I cut them out as well and used a pop dot to adhere them to the fireplace, with care of course, and then i added a little tiny gem to make it look like a nail.

I stamped the sentiment from DRS as well and mounted it underneath the fireplace. It is on there straight in real life, but the photo makes it look a little wonky. I hope you will take a look at the easy backgrounds from DRS as the are FOOL PROOF! That is a lifesaver for me! (lol)Thanks for looking and stay tuned for all of my Christmas cards from DRS...

Wow, what a pretty card. When I first looked at it I thought you made it using dimensional store bought stickers and then I read your description and thought WOW. I love it.

Thanks for your nice words on my blog. Good luck in your adoption process. Are you trying to adopt privately or through foster care?
