Christmas Stocking


Hi everyone.  The challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More (#113), is Holiday ... so I have another fun CAS Christmas card to share that only took a short time to make.

I started with the background, using a brick stencil and covering it with a thin layer of embossing paste. I die-cut the stocking twice (one from red felt, one from white felt).  I cut down the length of the stocking to make it more fun, and placed the cuff on an angle. I die-cut a holly sprig from green felt and added a red rhinestone for the berry.  I used red glitter glue to add sparkly dots for decoration on the stocking.   The Paper Smooches font is fun and fits perfectly with the felt stocking.

I have lots of Christmas card ideas floating around in my head and I'll be back soon with more to share with you. :)

Paper:  White (Neenah)
Ink:  Real Red (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Stocking die (Sizzix), Holly Vine die (Memory Box), red felt, white felt, green felt, red rhinestone
