Interactive Christmas Card

Hello Crafters!
I have another project here for the challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu.  I just couldn't decide which project to post over there.  So, this is my second project for challenge #6.
Doesn't  really  look  like  a  card  at  this  point.
Close  up  of  the  cuff.
The  cuff  lifts  up  to  reveal  a  message.

Pull  the  cuff  out  to  write  a  personal  message.
 I cut two of the stocking die-cut from Stampin' Up! then ran the main stocking piece through a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I had to flip one of them over to get the embossing on both sides correctly.  Using my finger daubers, I inked up the stocking giving a little more ink to the raised images and, of course, I inked all the edges of all the pieces.  The tag insert was a bit of a trial and error to make it fit right and not have the stocking cuff be all wanky.  Once I figured that out then I glued the side and bottom edges only of the stocking, attached the toe and heel and, added faux stitching.  I stamped the sentiment and reindeer on the cuff and added bling all around.  I made a loop for hanging on the top left of the cuff  (front side only) and tied a bow for a little extra fluff.  So, this is not only a card (you could add a gift card inside) it could double as an ornament on your Christmas tree.  I might just have to make some more of these now that I have it figured out for some of the people on my Christmas list.  Give it a try, it's fun!
