I really wanted to use this stocking stamp, but I was on the struggle bus with it. I looked and looked at ideas and didn’t like any of them. Then I noticed the little trees on it matched the little trees on the Trimming the Town patterned paper and that’s when it all started to come together. It reminds me of a cabin in the woods. Super cute!
