Stocking Gift Card Holder

Here is the gift that I made for Day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas Swap!

Stamps: None
Card Stock: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Night of Navy
DSP: Frostwood Lodge, Real Red Glimmer Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: None
Accessories: Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon, Stocking Die, Snowflake punch, Stocking Accents Origianls die, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Sticky Strip, Paper Snips, Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive, Blossom Bouquet triple layer punch, Dazzling Details, Snow Burst embossing folder

I cut two stocking sets from the Stocking die in Cherry Cobbler card stock. Then I cut just the stocking portion from Frostwood Lodge DSp. The DSP was adhered to on of the stockings. The cuff, heel, and toe were run through the Big Shot in the Snow Burst embossing folder. The heel and toe were ahered onto the stocking. Sticky Strip was applied on along the backside of the bottom of the cuff. Then Very Vanilla Seam Binding ribbon was ruffled and adhered onto the cuff. More Sticky Strip was applied on top of the ruffled ribbon to hold the ribbon in place and to adhere this portion of the cuff to the stocking.

Next I cut a candy cane from Whisper White card stock and one from Real Red Glimmer paper in the Big Shot on the Stocking Accents die. I cut the glimmer paper cany cane and adhered alternating strips onto the Whisper White candy cane. This was adhered to the back of the cuff. A present was made by cutting a square of the DSP and using the Blossom Bouquet triple layer punch with Real Red Glimmer Paper. I cut the blossom in half and adhered blossom to the very top of the DSP.

A tree was cut from Old Olive card stock. The small shapes left from the blossom punch were trimmed to have a flat end instead of a pointed end. These were adhered onto the tree and the Always Artichoke marker was used to draw a line and make the glimmer paper look like Christmas lights. Then Dazzling Details was applied to look like garland. After the Dazzling Details dried this and the DSP present were adhered behind the cuff.

Finally for the ornament. I cut the ornament shape from Bashful Blue card stock using the Stocking Accents die. Then I adhered a scrap strip of Night of Navy cardstock onto the ornament and trimmed around the edge of the ornament with Paper Snips. To add some sparkle to the ornament I adhered a scrap strip of Silver Glimmer paper on top of the Night of Navy strip. Then I trimmed around the edge of the ornament with Paper Snips. This was adhered behind the cuff of the stocking. The cuff was finally adhered onto the stocking.

A piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock was cut at 2-1/2" x 3" and scored 1-1/2" parallel to the 2-1/2" side. This piece was folded in half and adhered to the top and bottom stocking to create a hinge. Next a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock was cut at 2-1/2" x 1-1/2". Sticky Strip was applied around the two short sides and one of the long sides. This was adhered inside the stocking to hold the gift card in place.

I will admit making all the pieces for the things that look like they are sticking out of the stocking took more time than I expected. But I really do love the end result!

Thanks for stopping by!
