Hang Your Stocking with Warmth and Cheer

 I'm continuing my quest to use all my new Holiday Catalogue bundles and other products and I was designing some fairly simple cards to use for my Christmas Stamper's Dozen this week. This is one of my favourite designs and it uses the Hang your Stocking bundle. This includes the Hang Your Stocking stamp set and the Christmas Stocking Thinlits Dies. Keeping it simple meant adding everything on the card front layer so I used strips of the Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack as a background and then added a die cut stocking and sentiment as well as a couple of fir branches from the Pretty Pines Thinlit Dies.

  • I love the Noel edgelit from the Christmas Stocking Thinlits. It looks like it is just sitting on the mantel piece with the stocking hanging from it.
  • I could have stamped a stocking first and die cut it, but I was curious to know what the thinlits could do. I experimented with different plain backgrounds behind the Cherry Cobbler die cut stocking and settled on Whisper White over Garden Green, Black, Delightful Dijon and Crumb Cake, The Whisper White showed up the best without being too jarring.
  • Don't you just love those Mini Jingle Bells? Along with the little fir branches from the Pretty Pines Thinlits, they add the right touch to embellish the stocking.
  • Using the strips of Designer Series Paper allows you to have a bit more variety without using up too much paper. I've woven the ends for interest. This design gives the impression of knitted texture all through it.
