Elf Stocking Card

Hi Bloggers:

Well, I have to say that I am very pleased with how this card came out. My husband found a box of aluminum foil sheets
and I decided to fold one into 4 quarters - then I placed it between a Sizzix dry embossing folder
and do I like the results!! 
Thanks for stopping by 
and have a blessed week!

White cardstock for the base of the card
Aluminum foil sheet
Dry Embossing Folder by Sizzix
Bugaboo Digital Stamp - Elf with Stocking
Spellbinders 11 Die cuts - 2 sizes
Red cardstock scrap for one of the die cuts
White cardstock to print the digital stamp
Spectrum Noir Markers
MFP Sentiment Stamp- Merry Christmas
Midnight Confessions - Black Ink PowderPuff Chalking Ink
Scrap of a die cut used to stamp sentiment - that is why it is rounded at the top- then I cut the sides for a banner look
