Cozy Christmas Stocking


Hi everyone.  Today I'm playing along with Merry Monday Challenge #187 (Plaid).




The only plaid I could find in my studio was woven ribbon, so I cut off the wire edges and attached the ribbon to a piece of sookwang tape.  It's so strong and will hold all the fibers together so it doesn't fray.  Then I cut out a stocking, white felt cuff, and a sprig of holly from some green felt.

I thought the stocking would be perfect with a stitched background.  A simple sentiment finished the card.  Fun, easy card to make.

Come play along.  Use plaid ribbon, plaid patterned paper, or make your own plaid by drawing some lines with a ruler.

Thanks for dropping by for a visit!
