Christmas Stocking Card

Good Evening to you all!

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!
