Santa's Little Stocking!

This little card is similar to some I've seen created by Stampin' Up cardmakers.  It uses all Stampin' Up products.  My card has an added white cardbase than most I've seen, and it is larger (of course)!  I decided I like using the heel and toe silver to match the stocking cuff, where most I've seen to not add to the base of the stocking and leave it all red.  For my sentiment I have used the Sizzlits Lots of Tags die and modified both pieces. . .that was an interesting project.  I decided this card will go to a really good friend of mine who entered my life as the wife of a co-worker of my husband's, then became a Mom at the school where I worked, and finally went to work for the district as a substitute office worker, where I requested her for our building many times.  Thus, evolved a long-time friendship that has endured into my retirement.

Recipe: SU stamp: More Merry Messages (sentiment). SU papers: Whisper White cs, Real Red cs, Silver Glimmer paper, Red Glimmer paper. SU Holiday Stocking Bigz die. SU Embossing Folder (Stripe). Sizzlits Lots of Tags (modified). Real Red 5/8” satin ribbon.
