Stockings hung by the chimney with care....

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by. This weeks challenge is "Stockings", it was left up to us to use our imaginations as to what that meant.  As you can see from the posts the other DT members have been doing, there are endless possibilities.  

My take on this challenge are these two socks.  One is a decorative card and the other is a gift card holder.

On this sock I used my BIA to bind the cuff of the stocking so I could flip it up and have a sentiment stamped on the underside (see second photo) I stamped the Winter Bird on cream Pugnacious Paper and colored them with copic markers. I put some Glossy Accents on the red berries to add some shine and I fussy cut it out and popped it up on the corner of the cuff (it actually hides a bird that was on the patterned paper). 

I stamped the Pattern Royale background stamp on more cream card stock and trimmed it out to make the toe and heel of my sock.  I distressed the edges with ink using my Lil inkers and then used Scraphappy glue to attach it on. On the inside flap I used a sentiment stamp from the Christmas Tidings set. I was thinking under the flap would be a good place to put a gift card or maybe a photo as a surprise for the recipient. 

This little guy got stamped with the Pattern Royal background stamp as well but all over the sock (it's smaller than the previous stocking) I made this one into a gift card holder by attaching a coin envelope to the back with some One & Only tape.  I wrapped some ribbon around the gift card so when the recipient pulls the ribbon the card comes out.

I used a sentiment stamp from the Christmas Tidings set inking one word at a time so I could fit them on my scalloped circle punch out. I then attached some nestabling  to add some sparkle. 

Hope you've enjoyed our challenge this week, don't forget to check in daily to see what's new.

Thanks Kristine. I think I'll be making more of the little giftcard holder one as my cards/presents for my family back home this year. :) I'm going to use the bingo stamp one for my grandma LOL
