Another Christmas Stocking Card idea
I wanted to share another idea I was playing with for the Hang Your Stockings stamp set (in the 25% off sale) and the Christmas Stockings framelits (30% off in the Online Extravaganza). I was playing with my traditional colors and patterns from the This Christmas designer paper from the Annual Catalog and the Layering Ovals dies and just kept adding bits and pieces until I called it fully festive!
One of my favorite things to do with the Christmas Stockings dies is to use the intricate designs and layer them over glimmer paper (like this card) or onto regular cardstock like this card. In this case, I wanted to add in a few little stockings too and realized that the stamp images from the Hang Your Stocking set coordinate perfectly.
I stamped with Garden Green ink and then cut out with the framelits – if you don’t have the magnetic platform, it helps a bunch for cutting out the stockings with just the right amount of edge!
Then I used the Noel sentiment from that same Christmas Stockings die set out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and layered it over some of the Gold Glimmer paper to help it stand out and not get lost in the card.
Seriously, when in doubt, add some glitter! 🙂
Oh, and I forgot to mention, help your stockings be ready to hang by adding a little piece of the Very Vanilla thick baker’s twine to the top of each. I looped a small piece and taped it to the back of the stocking. It was just the final touch I needed.
So have fun playing with layers and seeing what you can come up with!
