Christmas Stockings Card

This card I am using a set of dies that I got from Ali express.  It is for a series of Christmas stockings and accessories to decorate them with.  I am just using one ouline die, the top cuff and the toe and heel pieces in some contrasting Christmas papers.  I wanted them to be a bit sturdier than paper, so I have used some double-side sticker paper and stuck the patterned paper onto some scrap card, then cut out the different pieces to make up 3 ‘stockings’


I have cut out two panels to go on one of my standard card bases of 5” x 7”, one in green and the front panel in the same white as the card base.


I then stamped the sentiment onto the bottom middle of the white card panel.  I used a piece of hemp string and tied that onto the top of the front panel loosely to look like the stockings have been hung.  I also tied 3 bows with a gold bell on them which will be put onto the stockings once they have been stuck to the top of the card along the string line. 




And that is the card finished.  Here is a video on how I made the card. If you prefer to see it in full HD, then you can pop over to my YouTube channel here.
