Tidings & Trimmings Die-Cut Stockings Cards
I love the versatility of the Christmas Trimmings Dies. You can create adorable little stockings that are stamped or die-cut from Designer Series Paper patterns or even textured cardstock. Plus, there are all kinds of detailed accents you can add to decorate your stockings, like holly leaves and berries, branches of leaves or berries and a stamped bow. You can go simple or add lots of layers…whatever you like! I demonstrated a couple of ways you could dress up a cute stocking die-cut from DSP.
Background Basics—I began by stamping some Tidings & Trimmings leaves images in Cherry Cobbler ink along the top left and bottom right edges of a Cherry Cobbler card base.
Next, I embossed a 2-3/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Soft Succulent cardstock with the pine boughs Wintry 3D Embossing Folder and layered it onto a 3" x 5-1/2" piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock. I tied some Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon around the layers, then mounted in onto the card front.
Focal Point—I created a foundation for the focal point by die-cutting a Basic White Tasteful Labels shape and layering it over a 1-1/4" x 4-1/4" piece of Tidings of Christmas DSP that I banner cut on the end.
Next, I selected two coordinating patterns from the Tidings of Christmas DSP and die-cut a stocking and top of a stocking with the stocking outline die from the Christmas Trimmings dies. I trimmed off the cuff pattern and adhered it to the full stocking and popped it up with Dimensionals.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Tidings & Trimmings sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a 1-1/2" x 3/8" strip of Basic White, cut the end in a banner cut and added it over the top of the stocking with SEAL adhesive and a Dimensional.
Finishing Touches—I tied some baker's twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack into a bow and attached it to the top of the stocking with a Glue Dot. Then, I colored a few Rhinestone Jewels with the Dark Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends Markers and added them around the stocking. So sweet!
Two Cool—I swapped out the colors on this second version for a similar look. This time, the Soft Succulent base is stamped with the berry branch in Sahara Sand ink. The Cherry Cobbler center layer is embossed with the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder, which reminds me of a fireplace, and layered it onto Evening Evergreen. It's tied with Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon.
Focal Point—I used a Soft Succulent pattern from Tidings of Christmas DSP for the banner, then added a Sahara Sand Tasteful Label die-cut. I chose a couple of different contrasting patterns of Tidings of Christmas for the stocking die-cut and stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen.
Finishing Touches—I added some lovely die-cut details to this holiday stocking, including Soft Succulent holly leaves, a Evening Evergreen leafy branch and a Cherry Cobbler berries branch. They are all attached with Glue Dots. Wow! Those accents really add so much texture and interest to the card! I finished with a few Red Rhinestones to mimic the look of berries with the holly leaves. Love those delightful details!
