Stiched Stockings

This idea was Jackie Topa's idea at least it was her web site I saw a similar card. It uses the Stitched Stockings (c) 123784 (w) 123782 from the holiday mini and the Stocking Builder Punch (124095) that goes with the stamp set. Makes a cute baby card. The Lace Ribbon Border punch (122362) was also used the strip was cut in half to make the border. Doing this makes this Holiday set a little more versatile..
