Christmas Stocking Card Specs

I've had a couple of requests for the dimensions I used on my August and September holiday card posts, so here they are:

Punch stockings first using scraps of holiday DSP; assemble with glue pen and allow to dry.  Add a loop of baker's twine to back of stocking using clear tape.

Card base:  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches Very Vanilla, scored and folded as a standard greeting card.
DSP:  Well Worn, cut 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches; adhere to front of Very Vanilla card base.
Cut black card stock 3 7/8 x 3 inches.  Center over DSP, aligning bottom edge of black with bottom edge of DSP.
Top of card - two pieces of Early Espresso.  One cut 1 x 4 1/4 inches and sponged with Early Espresso ink along bottom and side edges only (adhere directly to DSP layer, aligning top edge).  Other is cut 5/8 x 4 1/4 inches and sponged along top, bottom and side edges.  Add silver brads at 1 3/8 and 2 7/8 from left edge of this strip.  Before pushing brads all the way through, add loop of stocking over brad.  Pop up Early Espresso with dimensionals along top edge of card.  Add dimensionals to back of stocking and adhere to card.

Bottom of card:  4 1/4 x 7/16 inches, sponged in Early Espresso along all sides.  Pop up with stampin' dimensionals.

Make the fire using the bird punch (wing) - Daffodill Delight card stock.  Two of the flames curve left with the other curving right.  Sponge with Pumpkin Pie ink.  Glue together with glue pen, allow to dry.  Make logs with word window punch and Early Espresso card stock.  Sponge edges with Early Espresso ink and glue together.  Glue flames to top edge of logs.  Pop up with stampin' dimensionals and place on card just above hearth that is popped up.

I hope that all makes sense - have fun making these super easy cards!  To save some time, you could choose to not sponge the Early Espresso except for on the fire.
