OLCCC - Optional Twist is Stocking!

The One Layer Christmas Card Challenge is always anything Christmas goes as long as it is one layer.  For challenge #20 the optional twist is "stocking."
For my card, I've "rediscovered" Pearl Ex!  I masked the sides of my white card base using post it tape and then sponged distress ink onto the area not masked.  Once it was inked I brushed on gold Pearl Ex and then used a dryer sheet to rub over the area to remove the excess.  I removed the tape, stamped the stocking image and the sentiment.  Then, I used my new We R Memory Keepers Next Level Quilted Embossing Folder to emboss the card front.  Wow!  What a deeply etched embossing!  (Can't wait to get more of these folders!)
We hope you'll share your one layer Christmas cards with us!  You can find the OLCC Challenge HERE.
