It might be hard to see in the picture, but the snowflows stamped in Lucky Limeade are embossed. To make, wipe the whisper white layer with your Embossing Buddy to take off the static charge so the embossing powder comes off without sticking in random spots you don't want it 😉

Lisa taught me this technique. TFS Lisa!!! Stamp image in Versamark and restamp on Limeade. Stamp on card. Repeat until you have background stamped. Sprinkle clear embossing powder over stamped images & tap off excess. With heat tool, apply heat until embossing activates.

Tie ribbon around bottom of layer. Adhere to real read card stock. Adhere to card base.

With Lucky Limeade, stamp stocking image on Whisper White and punch with Stocking Builder Punch. Punch cuff, toe and heal with Stocking Builder using Red Glimmer. Adhere cuff, toe and heal. Punch 1/16" hole in upper left of stocking cuff.

Stamp sentiment on whisper white and punch with scallop oval punch. With Decorative Label punch, punch real red element.  Punch 1/16" hole in middle bottom. Layer sentiment with dimentional foam dots. With Baker's Twine, thread stocking dangling from the sentiment. I forgot to add my jingle bell in this step so mine is on with a glue dot. Tie bow. Add sentiment to card with dimentionals.

Happy Crafting!~ Dee
