Pink and White Christmas

Hi crafty friends. I hope you all had a wonderful week. Today I want to share with you a pink and white Christmas card I made using 2 beautiful stamp sets from Inspired by Stamping

To create this card I started with a white card base measuring 4½" x 5".  I layered on pink card stock then added 2 beautiful digital papers.  I stamped  the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Elegant Christmas Sentiment stamp set then added a border to the center of the two papers along with a small pink satin ribbon. 

To create this beautiful Christmas stocking, I stamped the stocking using the Build a Stocking stamp set from this months release onto white card stock and fussy cut it out. I stamped the stocking once more on pink card stock and used a circle punch to cut out the heel and toe part of the stocking. I also cut a bit from the top of the pink stocking to add to the top of the white. Once I had all the parts cut out, I adhered them down minus the top pink part) and ran them all through the sizzix using a snowflake embossing folder. I know it didn't show up in the photo, but all the raised embossed parts have an iridescent glitter on it. I added some tiny pink lace to and popped up the top pink piece on some foam dots. I then added pearl trim above the lace, around the heel, and the toe part of the stocking. To finish this off, I created a little loop where a stocking would usually be hung from, added a tiny bow, a rose to the center of the bow, and then adhered that down to the card. 

Well that is all for me today. Thank you so much for stopping by.
 I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
