Christmas Stockings

Here's another card from the assembly line production this past weekend. I saw this last year on someone's blog (sorry, can't remember where) and I saved the photo. 

I made two colour combos and will admit this one was a bit more fiddly with gluing the little silver stocking bits but I love the sparkly silver paper!  The stocking is from SU Stitched Stockings stamp set and it has a matching punch which made it so much quicker than cutting around each stocking and it's tiny silver bits!  I added a little bow with red bakers twine and a real jingle bell to the top of the stocking and a rhinestone in the middle of the stocking.

I used my red copic to colour the rhinestone on the silver/blue combo.  The sentiment is from Seasonal Sentiments and I stamped it in either Cherry Cobbler or Baja Breeze depending on the card.  I made a border with the Simply Scallops medium die-namic and topped with a bit of SU Cherry Cobbler Scallop Dots ribbon.  The bottom bit is embossed with SU Stripes Folder.  I'm not sure which colour combo I like best but I'm happy I have 16 more cards to add to my box :)

Fab layouts, Leslie! The colourways are lovely too and the embossing makes them pop!

Serously love these. Must have that stripped embossing folder & I need that stocking. Why does looking at your cards always cost me $$$$ ?? LOL Hope you're having a great weekend Leslie.

Oh my word I love the blue stocking! Right down to the tiny silver bell - it's perfect (where the heck did you find them?)
