Play along with MOJO Monday! I loved this sketch, but didn't know how I would pull it off. I don't sew on my cards and I don't have a "stitch" stamp, so I had to improvise. This Stampin' Up! Specialty Designer Series Paper, "Candy Cane Christmas" provided just the design I was looking for to mimic a stitch on the sides of my square center portion.
Because I didn't want the stockings covered up too much on my center portion, I used Window Sheets and Craft Ink to stamp a sentiment, then cut it out with a 1" circle punch and matted it with a snippet from a Square Lattice Bigz Die. It is suspended over the stocking patterned paper with a Mini Glue dot and then the dot is camouflaged with a *sparkly* rhinestone. I like the way it turned out, but you can see in the close up that I didn't notice I had smudged my craft ink in my hurry to get this posted today!
