Flirtatious Christmas Stocking {sneak peek!}


Good morning all!  Happy Monday to you.  I've got a quick post today, but a fun one!  I had a chance to play with the new Christmas Stocking die cut that'll be available in the Holiday Mini starting on Sep 1.  I decided I'd go with a non-traditional Christmas stocking, so I used the Flirtatious Specialty DSP and LOVE this girly look! :)  Hope you like it too!  Here's the full picture for you:
The stocking is a Bigz L die and measures 5 1/2" x 4 3/4".  The heel, toe and top band are separate die cut pieces, so you can create a variety of looks and stocking styles!  I embossed these pieces on Whisper White cardstock using the new Snow Burst embossing folder, which is also a new favorite of mine because it's such a versatile pattern!  I die cut 2 pieces of the stocking and glued them together using the Multipurpose liquid glue.  The little lace trim peaking out at the bottom of the band is a smidge of the pretty Lace Ribbon Border punch.  To give my stocking a bit of a vintage-y look, I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake using a sponge dauber.  I love this new die and think I'll be using it quite a bit for the holidays!  It makes for a perfect size to stuff a gift card or small gift!  I embellished my stocking with a little bit of Pink Pirouette Taffeta Ribbon, buttons and white twine.  Oh yes - and the fun little Snowflake punch to give my stocking just an added bit of interest! Hope you liked this little sneak peek!  Stay tuned for more projects using this adorable stocking die :)  Have a great day!
