Vintage Stocking Christmas

This is the third card from the December Make and Take.



Stamps: Stitched Stockings, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla, Real Red, Early Espresso
DSP: Frostwood Lodge
Ink: Real Red, Early Espresso
Accessories: Decorative Label Punch, 2-3/8” Scalloped Circle punch, 1-3/4” Circle punch, Stocking punch, Early Espresso baker’s twine, Mini Jingle Bells, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Silver Brads, Stampin’ Sponge, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snow Burst embossing folder.

The card base was cut at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored at 4-1/4”. A piece of Frostwood Lodge DSP was cut at 2” x 5-1/2”, a piece of Very Vanilla card stock was cut at 2-1/4” x 5-1/2”, and a piece of Always Artichoke card stock was cut at 3” x 5-1/2”. All of the pieces, including the card front, were sponged with Early Espresso ink. The DSP was adhered onto the Very Vanilla, this was then adhered onto the Early Espresso, and finally the panel was adhered onto the card front. The greeting from Teeny Tiny wishes was stamped in Early Espresso ink in the bottom right hand corner of the card front.

The 1-3/4” Circle punch was used on a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock. This circle was run through the Big Shot in the Snow Burst folder. The 2-3/8” Scalloped Circle punch was used on a scrap of Early Espresso card stock. The edges of both circles were sponged with Early Espresso ink and the Very Vanilla circle. The Decorative Label punch was used on a scrap of Real Red card stock. The label was cut in half width-wise and the label halves were adhered behind the scalloped circle. The Paper Piercer and Mat Pack were used to pierce a hole in each of the decorative label halves and a Silver Brad was added. This was adhered onto the card front.

The image from Stitched Stockings was stamped in Real Red ink on a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock and was punched out with the Stocking Builder punch. The edges were sponged with Early Espresso ink. Then the Paper Piercer and Mat Pack were used to pierce a hole in the top of the stocking. A piece of Early Espresso baker’s twine was threaded through the hole and through a Mini Jingle Bell (I used a needle threader for this). The baker’s twine was tied into a little bow and the stocking was adhered onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lots of sponging and lots of punches, but the result is a very vintage and masculine looking Christmas card.

Thanks for stopping by!
