The Stockings Were Hung

This is my Thursday posting on the 
Dies R Us Inspiration blog today...enjoy!!

Hi there!
Doesn't it seem like Christmas is sneaking up on us?
It sure does to me, but one good thing is, I am getting
a head start on my Christmas cards!

Some of the easiest cards to create are with the dies!

I used a pretty Bo Bunny background paper 
I stitched onto cream card stock.
Another strip of paper from Crate Paper was added over that.

I cut a gorgeous stocking from Spellbinders Stocking Trio.
Now at the writing of this (which is well in advance...I work ahead)
the stocking was currently out of stock,
however, just type in the name to see if it is back in stock or
type in the search box
the word Stocking or Stockings 
to see all the other beautiful stocking dies
that can be purchased.

I cut a second stocking from craft foam to give it dimension.

Under the stocking I added
which I cut in 3 pieces to tuck in where I wanted it.

I finished by adding a bow and a wooden button.
