Scored for Christmas

This weeks challenge at Timeless Tuesday is to use scoring, piercing and colouring.  Well, time is very limited for me this week as my 95 year old Dad is in hospital with a fractured hip and I'm driving 45 minutes each way to the hospital every day, so this one had to be super simple!  I punched the edge of white cardstock with Martha Stewart's doily lace border punch, and cut it to size .  Then I simply scored just inside each edge and stamped the sentiment which is from Flourishes Holiday Greetings set with Real Red ink (Stampin' Up!) and then layered it onto red cardstock.  Then I die cut some  more red cardstock with Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Victorian Oval Template Die - so that was the piercing done!  I stamped one of the stockings from the image from Flourishes Christmas Classics set with Memento Tuxedo Black onto blending card, coloured it with copics and die cut it with the small oval die from the same Flourishes Victorian Oval Template.  I added the red pierced piece to the background with foam tape  and I put foam tape under the image piece too.  A very simple red and white card - but - challenge completed!

Copic Colours used were:  R22, R24, R27, R89, Y21, Y26, G21, G24, B0000.

Thanks so much for visiting!
