Hero Arts Fluffy Stockings for CAS Christmas Card Challenge

 
Hi friends! Welcome to my blog post for CAS Christmas Card November 2019: Warm and Cozy. Puppies and kittens! What is warmer and cozier than that?
This is CAS's last challenge for 2019. They are taking a break until January. I have had this Hero Arts, Fluffy Stockings Stamp & Cut set in my stash since last year. I finally got a chance to use it and I plan to use it a lot more!. They are so darling, these little guys.

To make this card, I simple stamped the images onto Neenah 110 lb. white cardstock (using an alcohol friendly black ink - such as Scrapbook.com's Hybrid black) and colored with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers. I colored a bunch, for I sell my cards at my daughter's shop in Wake Forest, NC at The Cotton Company. So when I color and design a card, I usually make several. Be sure to check the Angel Policy of any company that you use, if you make cards to sell. Most are fine with a limited amount, as long as they are created by hand, but I have found a few that do not allow cards to be made for sale. If you check their website, usually at the very bottom, you will find the link to the Angel Policy.

The snowflakes are from Jillian Vance's Delicate Snowflake die set cut with my Big Shot using Neenah 110 lb. white cardstock, really my go-to paper. These snowflakes are just beautiful and the inside parts can be left in or punched out. You can see on the card, the bottom left snowflake, I left the centers in with the fine details.

The background was made also with Neenah, but die cut with a Spellbinders Fancy Edged Rectangle. I really like not only the scallops, but if you look closely there are tiny dots (like stitching with no thread) all around the border.

The sentiment from MFT's Hug in a Mug was white heat embossed on Lawn Fawn's Black Licorice cardstock using Nuvo's Detailed Embossing Powder in Glacial White.

The inside sentiment is from Scrapbook.com's Holly Jolly Sentiments stamped on a Taylored Expressions's card base. I think I've used this set on every card I have made this season. So many different fonts and sentiments! I want to use that little reindeer head in a future card. So cute!
