Double D - Christmas Stockings


 Dear Ones~
The theme this time over at Double D is Christmas Stockings. Here is the Mood Board for our inspiration:
 And here's what I came up with:
This one was tough for me. I looked and looked, and the ONLY Christmas Stocking image I had of any sort was this tiny one from a stamp set I got along with a cardmaking magazine. I love the embossing folder I used for the background. I inked it up with Versamark and then ran it through my die cutting machine with some kraft card stock. Then I liberally sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heated it up. Doesn't it look FABULOUS? The stockings and greeting were also stamped with Versamark and white heat embossed.

The Ingredients:
GKD Kraft and White Card Stock
SSS Scandinavian Christmas Embossing Folder
Versamark Ink
GKD White Fine Detail Embossing Powder
Cardmaking Scandi Christmas Stamp
SU Rectangle Stitched Framelits
Trinity Stamps Satin Gold Baubles
If you head on over to the  Double D Challenge Blog and play along, you could win this ADORABLE stamp and die set. Don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created.  

Christmas will soon be upon us! Enjoy the season, and don't forget to check out Double D. I hope you aspire to be inspired!
 Until next time dear readers, here's celebrating your Creative Muse!!



  1. Wow, it IS downright gorgeous, I have this EB folder but never thought to heat emboss it like you did, so elegant and beautiful!!

  2. What an amazing design you did. I absolutely love that background and the matching stockings too. I am surprised that you don't have the save stamp from Gina K that Donna and I have. Lol

  3. It does look fabulous! Kraft and White is such a classic combo, a great one for Christmas too! That Embossing Folder is just lovely, very creative use of it! Merry Merry! Yeah I'm surprised you don't have that GKD Kit either lol

  4. OMGosh, yes it does look fabulous! I didn't realize it was an embossing folder. I thought it was just an incredibly awesome background stamp. Amazing, Judy! Your whole card turned out beautiful with the stocking stamp that is so perfectly coordinated with the background.

  5. Oh Judy ... for not knowing where to start, you sure ended up with an amazingly beautiful creation! LOVE the kraft/white design and your overall design just screams the holidays! Nicely done my friend ... awesome inspiration!

  6. Stunning and so elegant, Judy. I love the kraft and white color combination. And embossing the background was brilliant. A whole new affect for this EF.

  7. That technique worked beautifully on your embossing folder, Judy. What a glorious card!

  8. Oh my goodness Judy, this is incredible! I'm in love with your background, the sweet stockings and the kraft and white. The background looks like a frosted cookie. Your card is truly inspiring!
