Hang Your Stocking Christmas Card

Hello, and happy Wednesday, Peaches! I just wanted to pop in quickly to share a Christmas card with you using Stampin’ Up!’s Hang Your Stocking Stamp Set and coordinating dies. Typically I like to use traditional colors on my Christmas cards, and mostly that’s what I did with today’s project. However, I wanted to try adding an additional non traditional color as well. It was more experimental to begin with, but as I played with the color combinations I loved how they looked together. Normally I try to stick with three colors or less, or I feel my projects can be to busy (with the exception of patterned papers), but this one turned out to be a great combo.



For the first layer on top of my card base, I used a piece of Real Red cardstock. Then on top of that, I actually used the longest patterned stamp from the set Peace This Christmas to create a background with Real Red Ink. Then I added a layer of Emerald Envy on top of that. Next I added some layers of accents like circles, banners, and sequins. I added a layered stocking from the Hang Your Stocking die set and heat embossed a sentiment from the stocking set onto some Emerald Envy cardstock to finish it off.

So often I catch myself being hesitant to try new things on my cards and designs. I’m afraid of wasting product or time, or even of failure, but every time I find my self pleasently surprised. I definitely recommend stepping out of your comfort zone. You never know what kind of great results you can discover. Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next post!
