I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the card base. Then I added a piece of Basic Gray cardstock layered with a piece of Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper. I added another layer of Basic Gray cardstock with a piece of Basic White cardstock that I embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.
I used the Stockings Dies to cut two stockings out of Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper and used Basic White cardstock for the top of the stockings. I stamped the kitty, presents and candy cane in Memento Ink and then colored them using these Stampin’ Blends: Smoky Slate, Real Red and Shaded Spruce. I then cut them out using the Stockings Dies.
I glued the bottom half of the kitty to one stocking and then added glue to the front of the presents and candy cane and placed them so they look like they are tucked into the stocking. I added glue to each stocking and adhered them to the front of the card. When I was making the card, I went back and forth as to whether to adhere them using Stampin’ Dimensionals and I think next time, I will. I heat embossed (see the directions below for heat embossing) the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock using Versamark ink and the stamp set Holly Jolly Wishes and then cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and placed it on the card. You can find the measurements I used below the Supply List.
How to Heat Emboss
Prepare your cardstock by rubbing an anti-static pouch over the surface of the paper as it helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder (Stampin’ Up! no longer carries this product but it’s a must when embossing). Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it. Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image and then shake off any excess. Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so the paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch as your image is transformed!
