Yep, this week over at: Crazy4Challenges According to the days of the week calendar, jit’s National Candy Day ! So this week is to put some candy on your project! I am working on Christmas cards, so I made this card to look like a fireplace with “Naughty or Nice” stockings hung up.
Step 1: I began this project by cutting out the pieces of an, apparently, discontinued die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs that was called: 932 – Stocking Solid. I used Green, red and white cardstock and assembled as shown.
Step 2: Make a base card by scoring an 11″ x 8.5″ piece of white cardstock at 5.5″ along the longer side. Fold over for a tent fold and trim to 5.5″ by 7″.
Step 3: Cut a rectangle from designer paper that looks like brick and measures 5″ x 6.5″. Adhere it to the base front. Next, cut a strip from the same paper that measures 1″ x 7″. Score 3 times at .25″, .50″ and .75″ all the way across this strip. Now fold on the score lines to create what I hoped looks like a mantel to hang the stockings.
Step 4: Cut a square that measures 3″ x 3″ from black cardstock. Adhere it to the card centered as shown. Now adhere the mantel from step 3 above the black square.
Step 5: I used another discontinued Elizabeth Craft Designs die set called 932 – Holly Border.
Step 6: The candy in the red stocking are Silhouette print and cut files. I had cut from black cardstock, the “coal” for the green stocking. Then I used a white Prismacolor pencil to write “Santa’s Making a List”. Here’s another quick look:
