Stocking Stand-Up

Hi, friends!  Is anyone else getting ready for the holidays with Christmas card making?!  I like to do mine throughout the year, but if you're not into that, September seems like a great month to start!  I've got a fun Christmas card to share with you today that uses *NEW* products from The Stamps of Life!  Take a peek....

I started by die cutting some Spearmint cardstock using the Sizzix Playful Stand-Ups dies.  I used some patterned paper from the Smiles Collection patterned paper pad and some Kiwi cardstock for layering. This little stocking was made with some Powdered Sugar cardstock, Licorice cardstock, Licorice ink, more paper from the same collection, the *NEW* stockings4Christmas set and the *NEW* Stocking Dies.  A bit of gray twine and some Strawberry Goosebumps accent this cute stocking.

The sentiments, both from the *NEW* stockings4Christmas set, were stamped onto more Spearmint cardstock and then embossed with silver EP.  The shine is super pretty!

To add more texture, I used the Sizzix Flowers/Dots 3 Pack Embossing Folders and some red grosgrain ribbon.

I really love this fun card!  I also love how these dies can stand up like a traditional card as well as like a stand-up fold!  What do you think?  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

I'm entering this card into these fabulous challenges~

(red patterned paper, red goosebumps, red ribbon)

Thank you so very much for stopping by today!  I hope you take some time to participate in these wonderful challenges and create today!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)
