My Best Christmas Card Inspired by Pinterest!

12:10

Merry Christmas from the German Alps.  See that flat mountain in the distance? That's the tallest mountain in Germany! We are here for the holidays visiting with Laynes' family and I'm enjoying the wonderful food and german Christmas traditions (even though I am a little homesick for a good Canadian Christmas).  We went hiking on Christmas eve since it was really warm outside.  We got a little lost but we managed.

I was quite upset when I arrived and there was no Xmas tree. However, just in the knick of time, Laynes' brother went and "found" one. 



Anyway, this card, is my favourite Xmas card.  I found it on pinterest one day (it's not my original design) but I modified and used many of my supplies in order to make it look really Christmas-y.


These stockings were a lot of work.  Yes I have stocking stamps but decided to do these by hand and the cricut.  I started with the snowflake in the centre stocking and the floral border on the left stocking.  They are two different stamps, I stamped them with Versamark and white embossing powder.  I coloured the stockings with copic markers and then used a white gel pen for the stitching.  The uneven stitching makes it look more cottage themed I think.



The wood I cut by hand and embossed with the Tim Holtz wooden pattern embossing folder.  I used walnut stain distress ink for the edges.

The red background I used bronze Tim Holtz distress paint and blotted with paper towel.

I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays.  Keep checking back in the new year.  I am going back to Bremen on January 6th and have loads of projects to share.
