Skull and Cross Buns - Hanging Stocking

Hi guys

Another card from my crafty afternoon using stamps by Skull and Cross Buns.

On this card I used the Christmas Stocking Rubber Stamp as well as the Holly and Berries set of 2 Rubber Stamps.

I started by stamping the stocking on a panel of white cardstock before cutting some notches with a single hole punch to hold some twine in place.  I then stamped and fussy cut the holly and berries.  The sentiment was heat embossed in gold before adhering the panel onto the card base over some striped patterned paper.  To finish I added some clear Wink of Stella to the stocking and berries:

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Skull and Cross Buns - Christmas Stocking and Holly and Berries; Clearly Besotted - Christmas Sparkle
  • Ink: Versa Color - Evergreen, Camellia; VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Gold Rich
  • Patterned Paper: Doodlebug - Santa Express
  • Accents: Wink of Stella - Clear; Twine from stash
