I saw a super darling card made by Julie LaBlanc on Stampin' Connections, our demonstrator share site, and fell in love with this little Santa. She had it made into a card but I just made the stockings so I can use them as tags on my boxes of goodies I will be handing out to my neighbors before Christmas.
I don't have a pattern to share for this. I just drew a stocking and figured out the punches she used.
Hat: Wide Oval and Small Oval punches in Cherry Cobbler with a 1/2" Whisper White circle.
The fur on his hat was made by punching the Wide Oval punch into Crumb Cake cardstock, then punching again just above that to create this crescent shape.
Face: Wide Oval Punch in Blushing Bride cardstock.
Nose: The circle from the Bitty Pack punches in Blushing Bride cardstock. Mustache: Bird Punch wings in Whisper White. Slightly sponged with Crumb Cake ink.
Beard: Ornament Punch in Whisper White slightly sponged with Crumb Cake ink and cut off flat about 1/4" below the ornament top.
Although I am going to use these as tags, Nicholas added Candy Canes to some of them to hand out to his school friends.
Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Stamp Set: Winter Post snowflake, Four the Holidays
Accessories: See punches above. Cherry Cobbler seam Binding Ribbon, Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper for the toe of the stockings
