Fill Your Christmas Stocking

On Splitcoaststampers, the new QFTD #79 is Liz aka lazylizard. I cased this card of hers. I was wanting to use this Sizzix stocking die that I bought last year and never managed to use. I used a K&CO border and a Cuttlebug embossing folder called snowflakes. No coloring on this card. The sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers and is a stamp set called Christmas Postage Due.

Recipe:
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers-Christmas Postage Due
Paper: PTI white cardstock
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Sizzix die-Christmas ornament, light, and stocking, K&CO Elizabeth Brownd adhesive stickers, Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, Flower Soft gold braid, peppermint sticks from scrapbook store (no name)

Fab card Brenda, love how the stripes in your candy cane are reflected in your border! I'm hoping to get some time (and some mojo!) to play along with this QFTD as I've always loved lazylizards cards!

This is fabulous - love that die and this card looks soooo Christmasy. How funny you just came back from Atlanta and thought of me when you came through Montgomery because I worked in Atlanta this week (around Dunwoody). I am super close to Montgomery - about 25 miles North on 65! Call me next time!!!!! Hugz.
