C is for Checks

I came up with these designs.
C for Checks
For this card, I stamped and white embossed the All Lined Up Background stamp from My Favorite Things onto a piece of kraft card. I then cut a white panel using the MFT Stitched Scallop Basic Edges die. The bird is from the Spellbinders Sugarplum Tweets die set and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
D for Die-Cuts
For this card, I cut the panel from some cream card, and before I removed it from the die, I inked around the edges with some brown ink to give a vintage look. I then stamped some sprigs and swirls around the card and stamped the sentiment from an old WPlus 9 stamp set called Pretty Patches.
I took some watercolour paper and painted on some red ink so I had a textured base and then cut the stockings and heart from it. The foliage and stockings are from the Penny Black Socking Stuffers die set and the heart is from my stash.
I'd like to play along at
We've had some wonderful weather over the past week - cold but sunny and the best part is that it isn't dark at 3.30pm any more. I smell spring in the air!
Thanks for stopping by.
