What's in your stocking?

The challenge at Less is More this week is a one layer card featuring what's in your stocking   I made a couple, but one isn't one layer so fails the criteria but it made me giggle so I'm sharing it anyhow.

Here's my one layer version featuring the cute little elf from Santa's Elves by MFT.

I used a die with an embossing mat to create a one layer frame and then coloured the image with pencils so the colour doesn't show on the inside.

Now for my not quite one layer version. This one features a stamp by Waffle Flower called Stockings and what's inside the stockings is, for those who know me well, definitely what I'll be wishing for on Christmas Day ;-)

I covered up the "You" in the sentiment with a word stamped with alphabet stamps and added the tops of bottles from a Simon Says Stamp set called Adult Beverages.   All backed with the classic gin bottle green ;-)   [Although my preferred gins these days come in a clear bottle!]

Right I really must make a few more quick cards so I can get them written and in the post on Monday!


  1. Both of them are beautiful, but I happen to love thr onelayer. The embossed frame was a very clever idea to add.

  2. Both of them are simply splendid - hope you get your gin!


  3. That first one is stinking cute Tara, gorgeous vibrant colours and perfectly OLC and CAS. Hee Hee, did a double take and re-read your post to make sure you'd realised the second one isn't an OLC! Great work though and another superb image. thanks so much for playing along this week!

  7. Tara I love 'em both - gin card has given me a giggle too!
    My MISTI from you has transformed making one layer cards - so pleased with it.

  8. Loving both of these, Tara. Love those little elf images, may have to add them to my ever growing MTDS wishlist! And your second card is genius, although me and gin don't like each other....but vodka and wine will be just fine if anyone's listening!
    Thanks for sharing with us.
