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!
