I have been wanting try out my new Waltzingmouse Offbeat Background stamps to make a plaid background so caseing this card was the perfect opportunity. First I stamped the plaid horizontally using scarlet ink - then I stamped it vertically using blue ink. I machine stitched around this piece. I paper pierced around the image panel - and the stocking itself has a stamped stitched edge as do all the stamps in this set (that makes it easy huh!?!)
I distressed around all the edges and sponged them with So Saffron ink. I layered the stocking image - first stamping it on the white panel - then on scarlet and two different designer papers - cutting out pieces and layering them over each other using foam dimensionals.
