The base is Baked Brown Sugar and then a layer of Gumball Green Core'dinations embossed with the Snow Flurry embossing folder and lightly sanded. The DSP is the retired Orchard Harvest pack from last fall. Luckily I have just enough left to make a few more cards for my stash. I embossed the "merry" in Early Espresso embossing powder.
I had some strips of watercolor paper leftover from a club project that are just the right size for the banner element of the sketch. I stamped the stocking in Stazon and then used an Aquapainter and ink pads to watercolor. I added Gumball Green ribbon and 2 retired metallic brads and then popped the banner up with dimensionals.
The final touch for this card is the Dazzling Details on the white parts of the stocking design.
Thanks to both challenges for helping me get going on my Christmas cards!
