Instructions

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

**Your paper will be white! I forgot to take a picture of me folding the white, sorry!!**

On the DSP we will need to make two marks. Measure 1/2″ from the left on the short side of the DSP. Turn the paper clockwise and measure 2-1/2″ from the left on the long side.

Line up marks on your paper trimmer and make a diagonal cut.

Next, cut into 4 1″ strips.

Now, emboss the front of the card base.

Adhere DSP strips to the front of the card starting from the edges and then spacing the middle two pieces evenly.

Stamp gift images using Tuxedo Black and color in using a water painter brush and ink. I used Cherry Cobbler, Evening Evergreen, and Bumblebee. I use the Clear Acrylic Block A as a pallet for my ink. Gently press block onto the ink pad to pick up a bit of ink to color with.

Die cut leaves. I cut 4 Evening Evergreen and 3 Old Olive leaves.

Stamp, color, and die cut candy canes. Candy canes are stamped and colored in Cherry Cobbler ink.

Stamp stocking in Old Olive and color. I used Old Olive, Bumblebee, and Cherry Cobbler.

Add Wink of Stella to the toe and top of stocking.

Carefully die cut stocking. As you can see, even I mess this up sometimes! My die moved as it was going under the roller, so I had to color everything again. On small pieces like this I don’t like to die cut first because it is harder to hold down while coloring. I guess that is the price I pay sometimes.

Stamp, color, and die cut cat. I used Cinnamon Cider ink.

Stamp sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and mount onto Evening Evergreen mat.

I decided I wanted my mat to sparkle, so I added some Wink of Stella to the mat.

Then I decided my candy canes and gifts needed a touch of Wink of Stella, LOL.

Adhere the large gift with Seal adhesive to the bottom right corner of the card. Adhere the smaller gift using a dimensional.

Tape cat to the stocking. I find tape to be a cheap and great way to stick pieces together without the mess. I am able to move things around easily until I am ready for them to be permanent.

Tape cat stocking to the back of the sentiment as well as the leaves in mixed pairs.

With a dab of liquid glue, glue candy cane next to the cat’s paw.

Add dimensionals to the back of the decorated sentiment to adhere to the card front. I found that an edge piece from the dimensionals sheet worked great as well!

Add sentiment piece to the card front, centering it on the upper half of the card.
