Holiday Stocking Die Gift-Card Holder

Lorri Heiling
As soon as I saw the Holiday Stocking Die for the Big Shot, I knew I had to have it! I love how this gift-card holder turned out. The stocking has such a narrow opening at the top that it stops the gift-card from sliding down too far. I have seen so many beautiful stocking samples, it was hard to pick one, but I settled on this one. OF COURSE - IT'S VANILLA ON VANILLA - MY FAVORITE THING TO DO! With the first stocking, you sponge the embossing so it stands out. For the second stocking, you ink up a brayer with Crumb Cake ink, brayer it onto the debossed side of your embossing folder (the top side), and then run it through the Big Shot for a totally different look! Since there is no ink in the debossed part, it keeps the image Very Vanilla! Either way, it's beautiful! All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up! The recipe is below.
