Below is one of the ways I decided to use this stamp set.  It is a 5" x 7" size card.  Note that you can click on the picture to see details.


Here is just a closer look at the detail (showing the sparkly brads (retired) and the sparkles.


Supplies:  Holiday Magic Stamp Set; Believe Workshop of the Go Papers; Black, Sweet Leaf, White Cardstock, Topiary, Sky, Black Exclusive Inks; Clear Sparkes, Red Sparkles; Glitter Brads (Retired); Border & label punch from SU; Spellbinder Dies; Quick Cut Scallop Die & Spellbinders Circle Dies.

Compatibility with CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge:  I was doing some playing around and found that you can cut the perfect outline shapes with your Cricut for the stocking stamps setting the size to 3-1/4".  The cutting shape is found on page 67 and it is the shift key + 7th key on bottom row.  See below and click to see detail better:


For the Christmas tree/banner (however you use it).  I had to make a height and width adjustment.  I use Cricut Design Studio because I'm a visual person and it just works so much better for me.  Anyway, I set the height to 3.5" and the width to 2".  The cutting shape is found on page 31 and is she shift key + 1st key in 2nd row.  See below and click picture to see detail better:


So that's why I've got a cutting machine!
