Here are some closeups of detail....
I did distressed paper layers, using lace in the layers. I also did some hand stitching. The burlap flowers are Petaloo...
I left the top of the card open,so that I can insert tags,notes ect... I painted the font with DA raisin paint,then applied a coat of clear crackle, once the crackle dried I rubbed on some gesso to bring out the cracks, & did the snow effect on the top,using Prima white sand texture & sprinkling on glitter while the texture was still wet....
I also used strings of pearls in the layers. I used white crackle on the leafy flourish.....& left the gate raw except for inking the edges.....

Thank you so much for taking the time to look.....Rachelle

Christmas Stocking Cards****Dusty Attic/Maja Design***

 Hello,today I am here to share with you a couple cards & LO's I did,using lots of Dusty Attic's Amazing chipboard.I love working with chipboard!!! The cards I made are Christmas Stocking cards. I have been making, the tiny stockings, using the Dusty Attic Christmas Banners& thought I would make a couple cards,in fact I may even make more. Before I started to Scrapbook,one of my hobbies was making Christmas Stockings. These cards are stitched together,just like a stocking,leaving the top open for notes,tags& gift Certificates,or whatever else you can squeeze in. Speaking of Gift Certificates, you can now get them from Dusty Attic,plus you can order your own chipboard through Dusty Attic & have it delivered right to your door. Here is my first card,it measures about 4.5 inches wide & 11 inches in length. Oh,you can also hang these up for display....

The flowers & berries are Petaloo. I painted most of the chipboard with white crackle paint,then rubbed in a brown chalk, once the crackle dried, to bring out the cracks. I used Prima white sand texture for the snow effect..
I hand cut out the little circles for the banner,from the paper, I was using,inked the edges,applied clear varnish & sprinkled on some glitter while the varnish was wet..I did paper layers,used lace,chipboard & pearls in my layers...
Used snowflakes as buttons on the stocking...

Here are some close ups of detail...
I did distressed, hand stitched,paper layers,using DA chipboard,lace & pearls in my layers..On most of the chipboard I used white crackle......
I dipped the poinsettia in water,then heat gunned it so that the petals would curl up.Then I applied 2 coats of red pepper color ink,then a thick coat of  clear crackle.Once the crackle I dry brushed in some black chalk to bring out the cracks.I then applied Prima white sand texture,sprinkling on some glitter as the texture was still wet. I also traced the outer piece of the poinsettia,to make leaves under with the paper I was working with. I then glued all the pieces together,using tweezers,to hold it together & giving the glue time to dry... 

Don't forget that you can order, from the Dusty Attic Website,plus get gift certificates... Thank you, so much for taking the time to look....Rachelle
