Christmas Stockings Pop 'n Cuts & Purple Onion Card

Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge this month is to use Red along with some of her Stitched Framelits dies.. how Christmassy and lovely!
I chose to use the Pop 'n Cuts Square Card with Ornate Edges, and put the label insert in it, though this was covered up with the larger Label Framelit I used, which also features a Stitched Frame Framelit.
The stockings are from a single stamp by Purple Onion Design, found here. Purple Onion have just the loveliest selection of Christmas stamps!!
I stamped onto different patterned papers by October Afternoon, and cut out the different parts of the stockings, then stuck them down with foam pads.
I highlighted some areas with liquid pearls, and others with Frantage glitter.
I used the scrolls from the card die for the top and bottom of the card, decorated with more Frantage glitter, and I hand cut some holly leaves. I inked round the edges of everything with Distress Ink.
The banner is from Tim Holtz's Regal Crest Bigz die, and the sentiment is also a stamp from Purple Onion Design, found here, in the Mini Mini Holiday set.

Some of products used:
