Today I am delighted to be sharing my stocking with you. I was inspired by these gorgeous hand-sewn stockings and knew immeditately that I could capture this look using Whiff of Joy die-lights!
I found a stocking shape in the Silhouette store and quickly cut two out of some white cardstock. I adhered them together to make it a bit sturdier. I found patterned paper (Kaiser Craft Christmas Carnival) that echoed the fresh and crisp colors in the stockings. I used the medium chevron from the Chevron die-lights set to cut out the patterned paper and then all I had to do was adhere them to my stocking. I covered the back in the same way and then lightly sponged the edges with some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
To embellish, I added my sweet Henry Mouse angel image and some adhesive gem stones. I punched a whole in the corner with my crop-o-dile and then threaded in some matching ribbon. I die-cut the tag using some glittered paper and then tied that to the ribbon with some baker’s twine. All done and I think that it will be a welcome addition to a special someone’s tree this year :)
Thanks for stopping by today. If you would like to win this Angel image, simply leave a comment below before 8am CEST tomorrow. I will randomly pick a winner and post their name at 7am CEST on December 8th :)
Be sure to stop by again tomorrow morning for another Designer’s Stocking creation :)
