Today’s second of three designs featuring the Hang Your Stocking bundle is the perfect card to include with your last minute gifts. The snowflake on the stocking called out for the Navy and White with a bit of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer color combination as well.
The “outside the box” way I used the Hang Your Stocking Bundle is the Faux Suede technique on the stocking base. Okay, okay……it may not be totally “outside the box” but this technique added a nice subtle texture that plays well with its glimmer accents. The varying sizes of square layers and embossing make a great focal area for the stocking to shine. [Figuratively and literally, (giggle)]
BASE: The base starts with Night of Navy layered with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer, another Night of Navy and then topped with Whisper White embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The varying sizes of layers added a nice framing effect for the stocking.
STOCKING: I gave a Night of Navy strip the Faux Suede technique, then cut the “stocking” from the Christmas Stockings Framelits Die Set. I layered this onto a solid stocking of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer. Finally I topped the stocking toe, heel and cuff in Dazzling Diamonds as well. I popped this with Dimensionals to add “more height”.
SENTIMENT: This design lends itself to a clean and simple sentiment so I went with “Merry Christmas” from the Hang Your Stocking Stamp Set. I stamped it in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White and……yes, ma’am……fussy cut. This was popped with Dimensionals as well to add “even more height”. [smile]
This post is fitting as we have had snow and ice yesterday and this morning. Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a great Friday and weekend! Until next time……happy stamping!
