Stitched Stockings

A new Stocking Builder Punch that coordinates with the new Stitched Stockings Stamp Set, all from the Holiday Mini Catalog, were used for today's card.  Hard to believe we are thinking of making Christmas cards already!

The card is made with a base of Always Artichoke cardstock, followed by a layer of Whisper White that was framed all of the way around with the Paper Piercing Tool.  I added some of the new Cherry Cobbler Quilted Satin Ribbon and then placed my stamped and punched stockings on top.  To make the stockings, I first stamped the images with Cherry Cobbler ink and punched them out.  Next, I added additional punched pieces of Always Artichoke cardstock that were embellished with Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds.   I wish you could get a better look at the Dazzling Diamonds, because in person it really sparkles, but unfortunately it doesn't show up as well on this picture.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Greetings stamp set.
