JustRite Friday Challenge #056: Shaped Holiday Card or Tag

Hi fellow stampers!  I'm so glad JustRite is resuming their biweekly challenge series--it was always so much fun (and challenging!) to participate.  And thanks for the heads-up, Kelli!   This particular challenge is to create a shaped holiday card or tag using JustRite.  The shape that immediately came to mind is the darling stocking template designed by Claire Brennan of Waltzingmouse fame:

The card is also a gift card holder, so it should come in handy in a few short months :)

JustRite stamp sets used on this card were:  Christmas Nested Sentiments, Christmas Nested Frames & Occasions, and Holiday Cheer.  The background of the stocking was stamped with the holly motif from Holiday Cheer and colored in with Copics and a glitter pen.  The sentiment and holly border were stamped in white craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder, then colored in with gouache paint.  White gel pen was used to add the toe and heel stitching to the patterned paper, and lace was adhered to the top of the stocking with Scor-Tape.  The greeting inside was stamped with SU Ruby Red ink.  

That was fun!  Thanks for looking,


  1. Cyndie that is amazing! How inspired of you to use this template and your Copic colouring is terrific - all those individual bunches of holly perfectly coloured. Do you think you could bear to do afew of these in such great detail for Christmas, you are far more patient than I.

    Thank you for all the lovely comments you leave, I really do look forward to reading what you think.
