More Christmas Creations

Gold Medallion 2

Simplicity in gold and white!  That’s what this card says to me.  Deb created this card using brushed gold and Whisper White card stock.  She embossed the “Medallion” stamp image with gold embossing powder, added a simple gold embossed “Merry Christmas tag and a white bow.  Simplicity!

Peace stockingThis is my “Peace” stocking.  Granddaughter Jailyn says she likes the stocking but doesn’t like the color.  I, on the other hand, find the silver glimmer paper very striking with the burgundy.  I added a scallop border to this simple stocking along with 3 die cut snowflakes that feature rhinestones centers.  The embossing folder used with this stocking is the new Snow Burst folder (Holiday Mini, p.33).  The embossing impression is deep and really changes the texture of the paper. 

 

By the way, I want you to know that we will be finishing the backs of all our stockings.  You might wonder why as the back is not seen when a stocking is hanging on the wall or fireplace.  However, to me it is simply a good practice to always totally finish a project.  This is the view of several of the stockings:

Stocking backsWhen we cut a stocking, we will cut two so that we have a front as well as a back.  If we are embossing, we will make sure each side is embossed in the correct direction.  This gives a finished appearance!

 

 

Mother stockingThe final stocking for today is one I created for my 93-year old Mother who is visiting from California.  Note that I used a real red stocking embossed in Vintage Wallpaper.  The trim is Holly Berry Bouquet.  The stocking is decorated simply with pearls and in the upper right hand corner, a stitched felt holly cluster.  This is my Victorian stocking.
