Love the warm and cozy feeling of this card! The Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies and the Quilted Christmas Suite are a fantastic combination for a "down home" feeling of Christmas. The stocking dies and the Quilted Christmas paper are on the Holiday Catalog retiring list and are now only available while supplies last. Full details on how I made these cards and the dimensions are below.
I took this photo in the full sun so you could see how striking the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is! It adds so much texture to any project – love it!
The greeting is from the Tags & Trimmings stamp set which is available as a "bundle" with the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies. When you purchase items in a bundle you save 10% over ordering the items individually. I cut the greeting out with one of the ovals in the Stitched Shape Framelit Dies to carry through with the quilt theme.
The Trim Your Stocking dies include a die to make a pillow box stocking for treats or a gift card. This version was made by Stampfield Stars team member Linda Larson with the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Paper.
You can see how the box closes and the pillow box shape better in this photo.
You can customize your stocking by using other patterns in the stack of paper.
Because I was making a card and not a pillow box, I only cut the lower portion of the stocking as shown here.
Then I was ready to cut piece to trim my stocking! Because the top of my stocking was straight (not a pillow box) I also made the top trim piece of the stocking straight by extending the top past the paper.
I placed adhesive on the back of my stocking top trim piece and attached the pom pom trim to it before adhering it to the stocking. I punched the holly using the Holly Berry Builder punch with Garden Green and Real Red card stock.
For the inside greeting I stamped an image from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set in Read Red ink.
