A Gift Card From Santa

I just had to play along with the Try a New Technique challenge over on Split Coast - the challenge was to use Claire's wonderful Stocking Gift card Holder template . You can see all the stockings in the SCS gallery here.

I'm still in the Featured Stamper mode from yesterday (see post below) of using textured card stock - so my stocking is made of 3 colors of green Bazzill. (the top lifts up and you slip the gift card (or cash!) into the stocking!)

I ran faux stitches around the top, toe and heel using a brown Copic. The stamps are Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No 4 and the sentiment is from the secret set.

The wonderful ribbon is from Sharon's No Time to Stamp Ribbon Shop. I hung the tag around the ribbon with a chain from Michaels. I sponged around all the edges with chai ink - which qualifies this for the CAS challenge to use sponging. I kept the embellishments simple in the clean and simple tradition.

This may be my last post for a bit - got lots going on for a few days - I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving time - I hope you are sharing this time with some loved ones - but regardless of who we are with - we need to remember to count all our wonderful blessings and thank God for them! I'll be back soon with some pics of my adventures.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
