Nested Stockings

Hello! Today I have a new card for this month's Dreamweaver Stencil theme, which is, "The Most Wonderful Time of Year." I'm talking about the holiday season of course! Dreamweaver has lots of fantastic stencils that are perfect for any holiday project, and just recently, more have been added to the mix! Plus, they have some special new holiday dies as well as embossing folders. I used a set of dies for today's project.

I used the Nested Stockings (DG692) dies for this card. This card was made really fast. Fussy cutting can be so time consuming, but with dies like these...you can get projects made in a flash. I cut the 3 stockings out with 3 different coordinating papers, but I kept the tops the same for some continuity. I also glued the tops above the foot part, to give it the look of a ribbon. And to just make it different.

My sentiment is from Woodware, and I embossed that plus the sides of the card with gold embossing powder for a bit of metallic sheen. It all came together nice and fast, and when doing holiday cards, that's important. Below is the list of the other Dream Team members with projects to share this week. Please be sure to leave some love for everyone. Below the list is the linky tool to add your own creation. Play along! And don't forget to join the Dreamweaver Stencils Enthusiasts Group on Facebook. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

You're right, as it comes down to the wire "quick" is good for the Christmas cards. But I see you're starting early ; ) LOVE the papers too!

I could totally see this being a cute card from a family, maybe with names on the stockings and a photo of each person tucked inside the stocking.
