This card started with me trying to get an idea to use a new die I had bought - Cottage Cutz Holly Jolly Legs. I had a left over piece from a previous card which I used for the brick fireplace. It was embossed with Creative Expressions Brick embossing folder and darkened with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The fireplace opening was made using Spellbinders Long Rectangles Classic and Scalloped. The fireplace surrounds and 'fire' are all from Cottage Cutz Holiday Fireplace. The mantle and base of the fireplace were die cut twice and joined together hidden under a stocking at the top and a log at the bottom.
The stockings are MFT Stocking Trio die used with the Stitched Stockings co-ordinating stamps. The inks used for the stockings were Brilliance Galaxy Gold, Pearl Thyme and Pearl Poppy.
