Stockings Tag Punch

Stitched Stockings Christmas Card and Hints for Using the Stockings Tag Punch
Here are a couple of projects I've made up using the Stitched Stockings stamps and punch.

stitched stockings christmas card

A quick and easy Christmas card using the jumbo texture stampin' around wheel in Marina Mist and Night of Navy.

Here's how I made it: -

Fold A5 Marina Mist cardstock in half and ink the jumbo texture stampin' around wheel with marina mist cardstock and run over card blank.

add other cardstock

Layer a piece of 50x143mm whisper white cardstock on to 55 x 148mm Night of Navy cardstock and then across centre of card base.

stamped stockings

Stamp three stockings in Marina Mist and three of the detail stamp in Night of Navy.  If you move too quick and get smudges like I did not to worry as we'll be punching them out.

using the punch

You can see in the photo that the stocking shape in the punch is on an angle.  This means you will need to cut not to closely around your stamped image before placing it in the punch. 
Now punch around all your stockings and embellishments and assemble your card.

Here's another version of the card above using the Confetti background stamps and adding a greeting using Teeny Tiny Sentiments and the Word Window Punch.
Alternative card style

Think of all the other colour combinations you could use, as well as adding a bit of glitter or texturing the centre white panel with a crimper or textured impressions embossing folder.

Christmas Idea Notebook
Stitched Stockings Notebook
I've covered a notebook with designer series paper and embellished it with the stockings and punch as well as the woodgrain background stamp in tempting turquoise and real red.  I often manage to shorten my notebook covers when covering so the scallop edge rectifies that mistake.
