So I know there isn't any stamping on the outside of this card but I did stamp a sentiment on the inside using the new Petite Pairs stamp set. I wanted to keep the outside Clean and Simple in fitting with the challenge. The base of the card is Wild Wasabi which is a great green to use for a little less traditional Christmas-y green. For some texture I then ran a panel of Whisper White through the Big Shot with the Northern Flurry embossing folder.
To make the shoes I cut out a Top Note with the Big Shot using the awesome red Glimmer Paper. It also comes in silver now too...think of the Christmas possibilities! Then I cut the Top Note in half. Next, fold one of the halves in half and using a small circle punch punch half a circle out just to the side of the fold. Then using a larger circle punch punch half of a circle next to your first half circle- this forms the tips of the shoes. Open up the Top Note and you have shoes!
For the legs I simply used some narrow strips of Wild Wasabi and hand cut some strips out of Whisper White to become the stripes on the stockings. I glued the stripes down with Tombow Multi.
For the final touch I threaded some Cherry Cobbler baker's twine through the new mini jingle bells and tied a bow. I used half of a glue dot behind each bow to adhere them to the shoe tips so the bells would still jingle.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
