Sweet Stiched Stockings

Here is another Christmas card we will be making in my upcoming Christmas card SAS.  I used the new set, Stitched Stockings stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog, along with the matching Stocking Builder Punch, to stamp and punch out these adorable little stockings.  Another cute idea you can do with this stamp set and punch, is making a little hobby horse -- see this link to Jackie Topa's blog --  Isn't that the cutest idea ever!  Anyways, back to the card at hand...  I stamped the Wild Wasabi background with the flourish stamp from the Elements of Style stamp set, then layered a strip of Real Red designer paper along the top, and cut a decorative strip from the Red Glimmer paper using my Tasteful Trims die.  It is the perfect glittery accent for the top of the card!  Then, add a little rhinestone bling and some of the mini jingle bells to the tops of the stockings, and you've got a gorgeous, easy Christmas card!  I embossed the sentiment from Hand-penned Holidays along the bottom in black, and added a red rhinestone (coloring them with my red Sharpie) to the dot on the i.
