Sparkly Stockling!

Card three from the weekend! This was a last minute idea, but I really LOVE how it turned out! It was very well received too by the Girls. How can you not love all the sparkle??


The card base is Real Red, the background Shimmer White. We started by adding a strip of Sticky Strip a quarter inch from thee top and bottom of the background. Grid paper makes this SUPER easy!! Trim the Sticky Strip at the edge of the Shimmer White. Burnish over the Sticky Strip with a bone folder. This has two purposes. One, it makes sure the tape is securely stuck across the entire piece of card stock. Two, it "releases" the red cover and makes it much easier to remove. Add Silver Glass Glitter to both strips. The stocking was stamped in Real Red on another piece of Shimmery White Card Stock and punched with the coordinating Stocking Builder Punch. Punch the toe, heal and top strip on the stocking from Silver Glimmer Paper. This is AWESOME stuff! Adhere those to the stocking with Mini Glue Dots. In the center we added one of the largest Rhinestones. At the very top corner, the "hanger" is a small piece of White Baker's Twine adhered to a Mini Glue Dot. Stamp the Happy Holidays (from Four the Holidays) above the bottom Glitter strip in Real Red. Attached the stocking as desired in the center with dimensionals.
