The shimmery golden tones from the Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Series Paper worked beautifully for these Two Cool Stocking Gift Card Holders.  The non-traditional colors give a classy & elegant, even vintage feel. 

I think they are gorgeous, and I can't wait to share that with my Stamp Club members tonight!  They'll be able to choose which design to create. 

Stocking Gift Card Holder How-Tos

Start with a 5-1/2"x 6" piece of Mocha Morning Specialty DSP.  Be aware of which side you want your stocking to hang and how you place the paper on the Stocking Die to run it through the Big Shot.  For example, if you want the stripes hanging to the right, you have to put the stripes face-down on the die.  If you want the stripes hanging to the left, you place the stripes face-up. 

TIP: If you cut two of the same pieces of DSP at one time, back-to-back, you will get all the parts and pieces you need to mix & match, like this…

Socks back to back

(I would have had a matching cuff if I had started with a longer piece of DSP)

Socks  - black pieces

Next, run a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Basic Black card stock through for the accent pieces and back, as well as a 2×4" piece of the black flocked DSP for the decorative cuff.

Socks - heel embossing  Socks - with heal toe

Emboss the heal & toe pieces with the design you want, being careful to emboss the correct side.  TIP: Place the pieces upside-down onto the side of the folder with "Sizzix" written in the corner.  You should be able to tell by the perforations along the edge which side is which.

Socks - sticky tape on cuff  Socks - ruffle

Next, add the ruffle.

For the Gold Waffle Paper ruffle, run Sticky Strip along the back of the cuff, then scrunch up a 1" wide strip of the paper along that adhesive. 

For the Chantilly Crochet Trim ruffle, I added the Sticky Strip to the front of the DSP, then scrunched along that adhesive strip.

Socks - card template

Once the cuff is adhered to the top of the stocking front, place the card where you want it.  Use any credit card, gift card, or make your own gift card from chipboard like I did.  Position it on the stocking so it peeks over the top of the cuff about 3/8" to 1/2".  Draw around the card with a pencil or marker.

Socks - stickied up   Socks - back

Add Sticky Strip just outside the pencil lines.  Where the paper is too skinny for the width of the Sticky Strip, add a bit of SNAIL adhesive. 

Add pieces of Sticky Strip around the remaining edges, and fill in the remaining edges with SNAIL adhesive before adding the black back stocking and cuff.

Lolly Medallion Embellishment How-Tos

Lolly medallions are fun and easy to make, especially with the new Simply Scored tool!

First, cut a 1" x 12" strip of Mocha Morning DSP, then use the Eyelet Border punch along the edge.

Lolly - scoring

Lay the strip on the Simply Scored tool, and score at every 1/2" mark.

Socks  - scoring 2

Flip the strip over, then score at every 1/4" mark.  Accordion fold on the score lines.

Lolly - done  Lolly - circle

Adhere the ends of the strip together, then form into a circular, medallion shape.  Punch out a 1" Circle Punch from scrap card stock, cover with Sticky Strip, and adhere to the medallion to hold it in place.  You could also use Multipurpose Glue.

Use a Paper Piercer to poke a hole for the Antique Brad.

Socks - crochet trimSponging Crochet Trim

Did you notice that I "antiqued" the Victoria Crochet Trim on the black stocking?  Simply sponge some Soft Suede onto the front and back of the Trim. 

You could also sponge on some Champagne Shimmer Paint for even more glimmer!  Dang, I should have done that!!!!

I adhered this ribbon, and the medallion over the top, with Multipurpose Glue.
