Christmas Lace

The current challenge at Winter Wonderland is 'Use Some Lace' and my first challenge was to find some lace!  This scrap was lurking at the bottom of my ribbon drawer and I made the card following the current sketch at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.

Card blank:  7" x 5"  silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Warm and Cosy' pre-coloured topper
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities A2 Matting Basics B
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Red hammer
Paper: Hot off the Press Floral Cardmaker's Ultimate Pack, Hunkydory Traditional Christmas (magazine freebie)
Other: Stampendous Fun Flock, Upcycled Snowflake,  Wink of Stella

I trimmed a piece of spotty paper from the HOTP paper pack, layered it onto red card and attached it to the card front.  A strip of Hunkydory green paper was layered onto red card and the lace wrapped around the lower edge, this was then attached to the card.  I die cut the topper (it was originally a square) and embossed it before layering it onto red card and attaching it to the card with foam tape.  I applied Fun Flock to the top of the stocking and the hat bobbles and then highlighted the image with a Wink of Stella.  To finish, I attached a snowflake (upcycled from one of my Christmas cards) to the lower corner.
