Be Jolly

Hi everyone.  Today is my reminder card for CAS Christmas May Challenge - Stocking, hosted by the talented Trina.


I went for a super CAS design this time.  I used an adorable "be jolly" die, stacked three layers thick with white card stock and topped with a bright green layer.

I die-cut a Christmas stocking from red and white felt as well as white card stock.  Glued the felt onto the card stock pieces for stability.  The red stocking part was dry embossed with a waffle design that, to me, looks like it's been knitted.  Added two small die-cut holly and a red rhinstone to finish the stock.  I then glued the stocking over top of the "j" from the die-cut.  Mountd my image onto a white card.  Easy, peasy.  This would look so cute with using different matching papers, so I might make more of these. :)

Talk about imaginative! This idea is brilliant, Loll! It looks fun to do too! The texture in the stocking is fantastic. I'd have never thought to emboss felt.

Love the use of the stocking for the "J" - and love it being cut out of felt and then dry embossed. Great card!

Sweet card, Loll. Love substituting letters in sentiments and the stocking makes the perfect “j”. xx
