Z-Fold Style with a Difference

There's something utterly charming about these cute little Christmas Stockings. I wanted to make a Z-Fold card but with the stockings hanging so I inverted the strip to make a sort of mantel. Keeping everything white, I just put the narrow strip through the woodgrain Embossing Folder which looks great against the brick. Just a splash of colour with the stockings, real red and pear pizzazz.

The only tricky part of the card was making the 4th stocking inverted (double sided). When the card is closed, you can only see the back of the stocking. I stamped a mirror image, not the best result as it's a little "fuzzier" than the first three but it looks OK!

Feeling pretty Christmassy around here!

Stamps : Hang Your Stocking, Oh What Fun (sentiment)
Ink : Real Red, Pear Pizzazz
Cardstock : Shimmery White, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories : Big Shot, wood grain and brick embossing folders, stockings framelits, white twine.

Genius idea. Love it! I just got the stockings and framelits and haven't used them yet.
