Stitched Stocking for Christmas

This is another take from the previous card I posted today. Isn't the little label adorable? This punch technique idea using the Decorative Label Punch was from Patty Bennett, a very, talented fellow demo. The stamp sets I used for this card are Stitched Stockings and Serene Snowflakes, Petite Pairs. The cardstock is Night of Navy, Whisper White, Baja Breeze. The ink is Night of Navy and Craft White. Other item used are Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Decorative Label Punch (made into a mini label), Dimensionals, Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon, Snow Burst Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Snail Adhesive, Dauber, Heat Tool, Versamarker, Stocking Builder Punch, Basic Rhinestones Insert the Baja Breeze Cs into the Snow Burst embossing folder and emboss it with the Big Shot. Lightly tap White Craft ink onto the embossed snowflakes until they are as white as you would like them to be. Sprinkle on Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heat with the Heat Tool to melt. Ink up the Serene Snowflake with Night of Navy and stamp it randomly on the Whisper White cardstock. Ink up the Stitched Stocking stamp with Night of Navy and stamp on the scrap of Whisper White cs. Punch it out with the Stocking Builder Punch. Use the Versamarker on the heel, toe and top of the stocking. Sprinkle on Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heat with the Heat Tool to melt. Attach a small Basic Rhinestone on the center of the snowflake on the stocking. Put two Dimensionals on the back and attach to the Whisper White cs and then layer it onto the of Navy cs. Lay a piece of Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon across the Baja Breeze cs, so that it covers the bottom of the Whisper White cs stamped with snowflakes. Bring the ends of the ribbon around to the back and stick them down using Snail Adhesive and attach to the front of the Night of Navy folded card. Attach the punched out stocking over the ribbon. Stamp the “Merry Christmas” from Petite Pairs on the side of a scrap of Whisper White cs. Use the Decorative Label Punch to punch so that the verse is turned sideways to the left. Now take a post it note piece of paper to hold the half-punch and turn it so that it has two rounded sides on either side to match and to create the mini decorative label. Attach with Dimensional to the bottom right of the card. Don't you just love this little mini label. Now, we can use this punch to make two different size labels.
