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!
