Stampin' Up! Sweet Little Stockings Christmas Card ~ Sketch Saturday


Sketch Saturday's sketch this week made me think of these adorable stockings and pets from Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Little Stockings Bundle.  Aren't they cute!?  I love this stamp set for creating cards for all my animal loving friends and family.  One of my favorite things about this bundle is that almost all of the images from the stamp set have coordinating dies!

What can you do with this sketch?  Head over to Sketch Saturday to enter your card in the challenge list.  We would love to see your creativity!

Card Base ~ Cherry Cobbler Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Scraps of Basic White Cardstock for the critters and stockings 
(OR all of them will fit on a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece)
Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"

  • Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the three stockings, three critters and 1 Santa hat
  • Color the stamped images with your favorite coloring tool...I used Stampin' Blends
  • Use the Stockings Dies to cut out each of the images. 
  • Emboss Layer 1 with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder
  • Glue the critters to the stockings as shown, adding the hat to the puppy
  • Splatter a bit of Cherry Cobbler ink on Layer 1.  My favorite way to do this is by dabbing a bit of ink on the tip of a Water Painter, squeezing plenty of water onto the tip and tapping it over the cardstock. 
  • Place a Glue Dot on each end of a 5-3/4" piece of ribbon, securing the ends behind Layer 1
  • Tie a faux bow around the ribbon, as shown.  (I also used another Glue Dot behind the faux bow to hold it in place
  • Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach Layer 1 to the front of your card. 
  • Attach the stockings and critters to the front of the card, as shown, with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

For the inside, use Cherry Cobbler ink to stamp the sentiments.  Then, stamp the gift box with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color in the box.  Attach the inside layer to the inside of your card with your favorite adhesive (I used Liquid Glue).
