CDT267 - Stocking Gift Card Holders

Thanks for stopping by for Color Throwdown 267! This week is my turn to host the challenge. For inspiration I chose these pretty snow globes. I love the neutral colors with a pop of color. 

For this week's challenge I used the colors to make these cute stocking gift card holders. 

The stockings are cut with the Jumbo Christmas Stocking Die-namics. I cut each stocking out twice and added a thin line of glue to the edges of the stocking to adhere them together.

The cuff is cut from MFT Felt in Sweet Tooth. The cuff and the holly leaves are included in the Jumbo Christmas Stocking Die-namics.

I used the Snowflake Splendor Stamp Set and Die-namics for the snowflake and the sentiment is from the Starry Christmas Stamp Set.

I created the pattern on this stocking with a stamp from the Large Scale Backgrounds Stamp Set, stamping Whip Cream Ink on Kraft Card Stock.

The flower is created with the Large Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics from  MFT Felt in Sno Cone.

Here is used the  Large Scale Backgrounds Stamp Set again to create the pattern. The flower is cut with Poinsettia Die-namics. 

 I hope you get a chance to play along!
