Christmas Cards - FREE Cutting Service

Here's the deal: From now until November 15th when you order ALL of the supplies from ME needed to create a Christmas Card you've seen on my blog, I'll save you the task of cutting the cardstock and Designer Series Paper.

When I deliver your order, all of your cardstock and paper from your chosen card design will be ready to assemble, cut to size.

Here's just one choice:

I saw this card on Pinterest and I'm pretty sure the original designer was Janine Tinkleberg. I loved it so MUCH, I had to CASE it. Now...I didn't have ALL of the colours Janine used (because I'd already used them up for OTHER cards that we'll be making this weekend), so I had to modify the design just a bit.

This card uses a Cherry Cobbler base with a Marina Mist layer. The Designer Series Paper comes from the Frostwood Lodge pack found in the Holiday Mini.

After weaving and attaching the paper, I stamped the stocking from Stitched Stockings and punched it out. I also stamped the toe, heel and top of the stocking, punched them out and adhered them to the stocking base using glue dots. The stocking builder punch makes it SO easy!

The next step was the jingle bell - no small feat! If you're coming to class on Saturday (that's TOMORROW!), I'll have them already strung for you - PHEW! After stringing the jingle bell, I punched a small hole in the stocking and put the string through that before tying the knot.

I tied a bow using the Cherry Cobbler Quilted Ribbon and attached it using a glue dot. The stocking was adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals.

What do you think?
