And the Stockings were hung...

I made this card a while back for a swap I was in! It uses the Stocking Builder punch, that will be gone after the Holiday Mini Catalog ends! :( Stampin' Up! has said that they won't be carrying it over. I love that punch! I thought it was cute for a baby bootie in this card I made too.

Anyway, not sure if you can see, but I tried to make the background of this card look like a brick fireplace. I used the Simply Scored and scored at every 1/2" from the top to bottom; and then at every inch from side to side (and I alternated on every other row). I also sponged it with Basic Gray to get the lines to pop a little bit.

Then I added the saying from the Four the Holidays set. I stamped it onto a banner piece from the Petal Cone die.

Oh, and yep, that is Red Glimmer Paper that I punched the stockings from!! Love that sparkle!

Thanks for stopping by,
