Baby's First Christmas

This is a lovely design I made for my new grandson's first Christmas!  It uses one of my favourite Christmas colour combinations, and several techniques  making this project great fun to do.  The base card is plain red card stock.  A piece of red spotted scrapbook paper is tinted with red ink around the edges, then matted on to white card and layered on to the base card.  A piece of Centura snow white pearlescent card is put in to an embossing folder and run through a machine. White glitter is added to highlight the snow flakes, and red glitter to the bow.  When dry this background panel is layered on to the card.  Using another piece of patterned paper a stocking shape is drawn and cut out freehand.  This is stuck on to a piece of white card, then cut out again with an extra bit of white card left at the top.  A mixture of glitter crystals and snow glitter is added to the extra piece of white card to form the top of the stocking.  An image of a hand made toy is stamped on to white card using black Versafine and heat embossed with clear powder.  The image is then coloured  with a brown Pro-marker, cut out, and attached to the back of the stocking as if sticking out of it.  Then the stocking is attached to the front of the card.  The tag is made from shrink plastic.  The sentiment is a stamp from Indigo Blue which is stamped on to white shrink plastic using red Versafine ink.  The edges of the tag are coloured with the same ink,a hole punched in to the tag, then it is  shrunk with a heat gun.  A ribbon is added then the tag is attached to the card with dimensional glue. Personalisation can be added at this time to complete the design.
