Christmas Stocking

I made another clean and simple card using the freebie templates from Claire Brennan which are available at the Stamp TV site. This time I chose to use the stocking template and I used the PDF form to make mine. Simply download the templates to your computer and print them out. I also used the Gina K. Designs Nordic Winter set which is illustrated by Claire. Also on the print out is a pattern for a vest which I might choose to use for another card some time.


The colors I used were Christmas Pine and Red Velvet ink from Gina K. Designs. I also used Christmas Pine and Ivory card stock from Gina K. Designs. The toe, heel and upper part of the stocking were colored with Bic Mark-It pens. Inside the card I added the Ivory panel on which I stamped the border design in the green. I used a brad to fasten the stocking to the sentiment panel.


I sure hope whoever gets this card will hang their stocking up so that Santa can fill it too. I think this is a really cute template and I thank Claire so much for being so gracious as to give the members of Stamp TV this little freebie. I know I am enjoying it very much.

Well, I hope your Sunday went well. I started my day out at church and then this afternoon I was busy writing cards to people and tracking down addresses. But I finally got that task done and that was when I decided to make this card. I really had fun too so my Sunday was a great one.

Thanks for looking and for the wonderful comments.

God bless,
Verna
