Stocking Card for Christmas

Stocking-cardI love the Big Shot Stocking Die that Stampin' Up! carries – so perfect for this time of year!  This is a card made with that die.  I cut out two Cherry Cobbler stockings (at the same time), then embossed the Whisper White cardstock using the Petals-A-Plenty Embossing Folder.  I then cut out the toe and heel with the die and the cuff as well. For the cuff, I folded the cardstock in half, then made sure that the fold was inside the cutting area for the cuff, so it didn't get cut off. With the fold intact, it holds this card together!  One hint if you're going to re-create this card – if you fold the embossed cardstock with the good (puffy) side in before die cutting, it won't "crack" along the fold line as it may if you fold the other way. Ask me how I figured this one out…LOL.

Hope these last few days of preparation for Christmas aren't too crazy for you!  Today's the last mailing for the 12 Weeks of Christmas for those on my email list so see you in your inbox a little later today.
