Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #94 - Use a stocking or stockings on your Christmas card.

Here we are in the second month of 2014!!  Unbelievable. I do not remember time passing this quickly 10 years ago. I am getting old. :-( 
If time passes as quickly for you.................... it's our busy lives I am sure.................... how about starting your 2014 Christmas card stash by joining us in this Merry Monday challenge. Next Christmas will be here before you know it!
This time the challenge is to use a stocking or stockings on your card, so pull out your stamps and dies and have fun creating.:-) 


For my card I have used a few Digital images. The wood grain background is from Etsy, the fabric on the stocking is also from Etsy, and the stocking is from me. I laid the digital stocking over the digital linen and printed it, then trimmed it. The stocking cuff was printed white and overlaid.
For the foliage I used Dee's Distinctively Wreath Builder Dies, Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents and Spellbinders Foliage. The tag is from Kaisercraft. The hearts are a Simon Says Stamp Die, and the scallop border is a Fiskers punch. The twine is Hemp from Etsy, my favorite!




Have a look at the cards from the rest of the team. You can go to the challenge by clicking here. The team has grown so more inspiration for our Merry Mondayers.

Have a great week. See you next time.
