A Merry Christmas Holiday Stocking


Last Saturday I went with several friends to Louisville, KY to a Stampin' Up! Regional meeting. We had such a great time! Lots of training, ideas and just good ole' friendships. At every Stampin' Up! event we always have the opportunity to take cards to swap with other SU demonstrators. I really enjoy doing this because there are so many talented demonstrators that I always come home with a lot of new ideas. The above stockings were my swaps that I took this year. I made 50 of these stockings, so I came home with that many swaps in return.

It's a little hard to see in this picture, but I ran my stockings through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I think this Embossing Folder made these stockings a little vintage looking. I was happy with the way they turned out. (If you click on the image you can get a closer look)

**These stockings can be used as a Christmas card or they make a great gift card holder.

Products used:
Naturals White Card Stock, Bravo Burgundy Card Stock, Old Olive Card Stock, Holiday Stocking Bigz L Die, Bells & Boughs stamp set, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Scallop Trim Border punch, Snowflake punch, Boho Blossoms punch, Old Olive 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon and Silver Brads.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great day!


  1. I got one of these! They are so beautiful in person and I love the idea of using them for gift cards!
