Christmas Card with Pergamano Focal

It's the last Thursday of the month and time for another Christmas Card.

The stocking with candy canes and teddy bear was created with pergamano techniques and then colored with Smooch inks.  I wanted the red to be a lighter color, so I used a Dove blending pen with just a touch of smooch ink for the body of the stocking.

The stocking is attached to a purchased Christmas Tag.  The cream/red behind it was created from a Spellbinder's die.  The die was used for the red Smooch ink stenciling that was cut in four pieces and attached to the tag so it would show on all four edges.

The paper is from a cardmaker's Christmas pack from Hot Off the Press.  The border started with a printed border that came with the Christmas pack.  It's border was created with an EK Success punchout that was cut in half lengthwise so it showed as I wanted on each side of the printed border.  The red of the border was enhanced with smooch inks, and a red ribbon completes it.  A stamped greeting finishes the card.
