Hobby Horse from Stocking Builder Punch

This card includes items from two of our mini catalogs, the Holiday Mini, which expires January 3rd, and the Occasions Mini Catalog, which begins January 4th. So if you want the Stocking Builder Punch or the frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper, you have only a couple more weeks to order them. (Ugh! How can this year be coming to a close so quickly?) And I haven't used a single stamp to make this card!

I've already pre-ordered a number of items from the Occasions Mini Catalog—actually, most of the contents of the catalog. Oh, my poor wallet! This card features the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and the Adorning Accents Edgelits Die. Just wait until you see them and how easy they are to use, how easy they are to line up with each other. There's even a stamp set that will stamp dots inside the embosed edge, but I didn't choose to use that on this card.

Notice how nicely the Stocking Builder Punch converts to a hobby horse! Just turn it upside down and add the toe for an ear. Then run some sticky strip on the back of his neck so you can pleat Cherry Cobbler seam binding to form a mane. Add a brad for his eye, give him reigns made of Baker's Twine and attach him to a toothpick for his stick and—voilá!—a hobby horse.

I haven't used the Perfect Pennants die for penants yet, but I love the decorative circles and have used them quite a bit.
