  Cut 2 Cherry Cobbler stockings out using Big Shot and Holiday Stocking die.  Cut 2 each from Whisper White card stock:  toes, heels, top cuffs.  Cut 2 Garden Green Holly Leaves using Stocking Accents die.  You can cut out the Red Glimmer paper Holly Berries with the die or the punch.
2.  (NOTE:  When embossing stocking and parts, make sure you have them face different directions in the folder so the back and front will both be embossed, instead of one having the embossing facing the inside-unless that is the look you are going for.)  Emboss the Cherry Cobbler Stockings with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder.  Emboss the Heels and Toes with the Snow Burst folder.  Emboss the Top Cuffs with the Northern Flurries folder placing the cuff so the desired part of the design is in the place you want it.
  Glue stockings together leaving the part open where you would put your foot-hee hee.  Glue Heels and Toes on.  Glue Top Cuffs on doing front one first, gluing the bottom of the cuff to the top of the stocking.  Turn over and put glue on the top part of the stocking and the sides of the cuffs.  (Remember we do want to have it open at the top to fill with goodies!) Glue Holly Leaves and Berries to Stocking Cuff.
4.  Stamp “Merry Christmas”  on Whisper White card stock.   Center words in punch and punch.  Place punched label on sticky part of post-it-note.  Hold inside punch and punch label close to top of words.  Put on another post-it-note and this time punch close to bottom of words.  Adhere to stocking with Dimensionals.
5.  Adhere Mini Jingle Bells to stocking using a dot of Crystal Effects for each bell.  Allow to dry 30-60 minutes before shaking to hear the bells jingle.
6.  Enjoy!
