I used the Stitch a Card stamps from Art Impressions. The stamps include the outline of the object plus the stitching pattern, so piercing the holes and adding the floss is easy. After I stamped the images, I cut the images out, pierced the stitching holes, and added the stitching using embroidery floss. I stamped white snowflakes onto blue paper to give a nice contrasting background.
For the stocking, I used metallic floss to add extra pizazz to the holly leaves, and used a red button for the holly.
Be sure to keep checking back for more holiday projects. I'll be posting more Christmas card ideas, decorations, ornament projects over the next several weeks.
