I wanted to try and create a simple fireplace idea but not spend so much time on that to the detriment of the stockings. I embossed a 5.25 x 4" piece of crumb cake card stock with our brick folder and then lightly daubed the grout area with some White Craft ink and a dauber. I then used a old Big Shot die, "Top Note" (everyone's favorite I think) to cut out a chunk of the middle for the fireplace. I toyed with trying to create a fire image, but decided to stamp my sentiment instead. I raised up the brick piece on dimensionals and put it on another piece of crumb cake. I stamped and die cut my stockings, wrapped some Baker's twine on the card and BOOM... done! These stamp designs are great and definitely feed my Nordic soul.
Hanging stockings is still a big deal in our family and probably always will be. One year I skipped it thinking the kids wouldn't notice... WRONG! Apparently that is really a big deal even if they only get pens, highlighters, mascara, candy and misc.
