Xmas Stocking

Hello Everyone and Happy Tuesday! Wow can you believe it we are already 5 days into November! Only a little over 3 weeks until Thanksgiving and then Christmas is right around the corner....  How are you doing with your Christmas cards? Already made all the ones you need?

The card I want to show you today is made using one of Moma's gorgeous Christmas stamps called 'Julstrumpa' which translates to Christmas Stocking. It is available as a digital stamp HERE. Monika has lots of beautiful digital Christmas and flower images in her shop. Make sure to visit her HERE!

Isn't it so cute? I had so much fun coloring this gorgeous stocking with my new Graph'It markers! I'll list all the colors I used with the next photo. The DP I've used is from Basic Grey and the die cuts are from Memory Box. The sentiment is from Whimsy stamps' 'Holiday Mini Letter Seals'.

Here's a close-up on the cute image and also all the Graph'It marker colors I've used:

Red: 5250, 5220, 5210, 9305, 9303
White: 9100, 9101, 9103
Green: 8180, 8270, 8120, 8110
Teal: 7110, 7120, 7140, 7160, 7170
Gold: 1280, 1150, 1110
Berries: 3210, 4110
Brown: 3120, 3170, 3140, 4180
Shadows: 9501, 9503, 9505

The Graph'It markers are not available in the US yet BUT you get Free Shipping Worldwide on all orders over £10 at Polkadoodles!

I made an easel card and on the inside I used the beautiful Choo Choo Train Border Die from Whimsy.

And like almost all of my cards it comes with it's own custom made box. The box was decorated with the Choo Choo Train Border Die as well.

Finally I found the time to re-open my Etsy shop. So this card along with several others are now available in my Etsy Boutique Delightful Card Design!

Thanks for visiting me today
