I used the lovely stitched stockings stamp set and coordinating stocking punch to create this brick wall inspired card.
Do you like the photo I have above the mantel? It is one of I took of my crew for last years Christmas cards. Using the decorative label punch ($33.95), and a small photo, it was so simple to make the photo decoration to hang above the mantel.
See the Merry Christmas sentiment? It is part of a set of 2 stamps called Christmas Greetings. Not bad for $19.95, I say. (I used the other stamp on the inside of the card)
I was pretty chuffed with my bricks and tried to make them look as real as possible. Some sponging, wonderfully worn background stamp ($33.95) and embossing powder helped I think.
I tried to kept the inside of the card simple so I can write heaps! *Grin*
