Instructions

Begin by folding your card base at 4-1/2″ and burnishing it with a bone folder for a nice, crisp fold.

On the stocking piece of DSP, cut out three stockings either by using the coordinating dies or by fussy cutting them out.

Emboss the white cardstock piece using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Make sure to line up the side edge of the cardstock to the line on the folder to ensure the bricks are going the right way across the paper.

Adhere the DSP card front to the card base.

Adhere fire place brick to the bottom center of the DSP card front.

Using a stylus and foam pad, draw wavy lines on the mantel piece. I also pushed folds into the paper by hand for more variation of lines

Mount on card front using dimensionals.

Mount stockings on the mantel using dimensionals.

Stamp candy canes using Real Red ink onto scrap of white cardstock.

Next, color in candy canes with Real Red marker or use a water painter. In the photos, I used a water painter and pressed an acrylic block into the Real Red ink to pick up ink and use as a pallet.

Die cut or fussy cut the candy canes.

Add a bit of adhesive to the bottom of the candy canes and tuck into the top of the stockings..

I wanted to add a bit of highlight color to the bricks, so I used a Blending Brush and Sahara Sand ink.

Stamp the sentiment using Merry Merlot and mount onto sentiment mat.

Mount sentiment onto card front using dimensionals.

Adhere inside panel to card. You can stamp a sentiment inside or leave it blank.
