Just a quick post today!! And another stocking card, of course!
This one uses the stockings as arms.
I love making Santa's suit, always have! I remember as a kid,I would draw Santa and his suit constantly!
the base of this card is a 4 1/4"x 8 1/2" piece of real red card stock. Score from 2 1/8" on the left side and 2 3/8" from the right side. The right side will actually fold under the left. Punch out 2 stockings from the Stocking Punch. Spritz with Shimmer Paint Mixture(if you are unsure of this leave me a comment and I will get back to you with how-to) Emboss only the front flaps and stockings(making sure to put opposite,so they are embossed not debossed;)).
Next sponge the embossed suit with some cherry cobbler ink.
To make mittens: use the following punches: word window for thumb,lg oval for hand and stocking punch for cuff. Attach to your 'arm' and then pop using stampin' dimensionals to card base. cut a strip of black card stock 1/2" wide. You can wrap all around card or just trim strips to front. Punch the smaller hole with crop-a-dile, line up jewelry punch with edge over hole and Punch a jewelry tag from our white shimmer paper. Buttons are from our embosslits buttons in basic black.
Hope you enjoyed this quick post!!!
Until Next Thought,
