Whimsy Stamps - October release showcase Day 3

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Whimsy Stamps October Rubber and Die Release Showcase!

On Wednesday (12 October), Whimsy Stamps released this month's rubber designs and new shapeology dies. From then until 19 October the Whimsy Stamps Designers and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new stamps and dies with a daily mini blog hop.

Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

And here is my creation for today.

I made a clean and simple card using the new Whimsy Stamps Set "Stockings" with the matching Whimsy shapeoplogy stockings die, by Raindrop Echo. I cut the stocking out twice, once using designer paper and the second time using white card stock. Then I trimmed off the 2 parts in white and glued them onto the designer paper stocking. Applied stickles to the white parts and used some popup dots to adhere to the diamond shape.

The sentiment is from a Stamp set by Crafts UK. I used the branch punch for the leaves and a simple handheld circle punch for the hollies. I applied glassy glaze on the hollies. Papers are old ones again from Stampin Up.

Would love to enter this card to the following challenges:
