I've been so busy decorating, shopping, wrapping gifts, planning Christmas meals, playing Dragon Vale (oh I know that doesn't have anything to do with Christmas but it is so much fun to play) and browsing through Pinterest for Christmas ideas, that I haven't had much time for crafting...
I had originally planned on making Christmas Cards for family and friends this year too, but well... I've run out of time so maybe next year hahaha. I did however find some time today to finish a little Christmas Stocking Card that I will save for next year. I was inspired by a card my mother sent us. It had the cutest Christmas stocking on the front of it. I had bought some cut out stockings, which were just the right size; at our local Michael's Craft Store awhile back so I used one as a stencil for cutting out my card. I cut a heal and toe piece and a cuff for the top of the stocking. I also cut out a bunch of snowflakes and covered them with Star Dust Stickles to make them shine. I layered large and small snowflakes together, added a pearl to the middle and attached them to the stocking cuff. The cuff paper already had snowflakes on it so I just added the ones I made onto those. The Joy tag is a pre-printed tag from the 6x6 paper pack I used. I don't know if you can tell or not, but I added Glossy Accents to the letters to make them stand out. I haven't put anything on the inside of my card yet, I'll probably wait to do that until I know who I will be giving it to.
Soooooo here it is...enjoy!
