Even though Christmas is next week, there is still plenty of time to craft up a special gift piece for that special loved one. OR, you can keep it for yourself...whichever, your little heart desires. Teehehe The Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series paper speaks an elegant 'country chic' to me, so I thought I'd tie it together with the much loved Perfectly Plaid bundle found in the Holiday catalog (page 13-14) to re-purpose a wooden frame that I found in the Clearance Rack at a local store. The inside platform measures 8-1/2" wide by 6-3/4" tall (measurements exclude the wooden frame).
This home decor piece would probably be labeled as a 'sampler' simply because it showcases a variety of dies, punches and techniques all on one platform. I broke it up into 3 different panels, with the middle one designated as the focal image and complimented with 2 side panels.
One of the patterns in the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series paper pack has a variety of stockings that (in my mind) called for some fussy cutting. With each stocking, the matted cardstock layer compliments one of the colors in the stocking. The Gold Foil paper layer gave them a richer flavor for the line-up. Super cute, right?!!!
Have I told you how much I loooove stitched dies? YUP!! The bottom sentiment is originally a one-liner, but it wouldn't fit in the width of this particular panel, so I inked up each word using coordinating ink colors found in the designer paper and created my own sentiment layout. This technique is called "masking" and is super easy. Just have to remember to remove the tape before stamping; and clean the image before inking the sentiment with a new color. Once you have that memorized, you're stamping like a champ!
