For my first card, I used the new Stitched Stockings set, along with the new Stocking Trio Die-namics. The stockings were cut out of some Lilybee Designs Christmas Cheer paper, and then popped up on the new Decorative Circle Tag Stax Die-namics, I made mine look like an ornament by cutting it out in Sweet Tooth and Fossil cardstock, then using the Mini Scalloped Edge Die-namics to make it look the the Fossil was a topper. Wild Cherry ribbon and hemp cord were tied through the top to make it look like it had a hanger, too!  I used buttons and cardstock in Berrylicious, Gumdrop Green, and Wild Cherry for my card base, and to accent my stockings. On my card base, I used the new Wild Cherry ink pad to stamp my sentiment, some Michael's brads, and the Fishtail Flags Layers Stax Die-namics for my patterned paper flags. To finish, I added a flourish using the new Medium Fancy Flourish Die-namics...love love LOVE it!!!


For the inside, I used another stocking, and another saying from the set stamped with Wild Cherry.



For my second card, I started out going clean and simple, but well, you know me!! I stamped my dots from the Darling Dots stamp set in Wild Cherry on Sweet Tooth cardstock, and then added some cute buttons in Sweet Tooth and Gumdrop Green with either Peapod or Maraschino Twine through them. My sentiment from the Stitched Stockings set, was stamped on a flag made with the Fishtail Flags Layers Stax Die-namics  in Wild Cherry ink. I added a Wild Cherry button to my flag, and a Medium Fancy Flourish Die-namics in Wild Cherry as well. My only other embellishments are brads from Michael's.


For the inside, I used more of the same supplies.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:






Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by, and have fun hopping around to all my teammates blogs! Head on over to the MFT Blog for the official list!
