Hang Your Stocking, Christmas Stockings, Candy Cane Lane Decorative Paper Christmas Card

I had some fun playing with the "Candy Cane Lane" Decorative Series Paper (DSP).  The background on this paper is not one of my favorites, I rarely use the Crumb Cake card stock, but I do like it on this layout.  How fun!!!

I cut my DSP 2-1/4" x 4-1/4".  I cut two of them.  For the Real Red layers, I cut them 1/8" larger.  I used the oval die and oval scalloped die for the stocking to be attached to.

I die cut the stocking using the swirly stocking, the solid stocking, the toe and heal dies and the cuff.

For that cute little bow on the stocking, I took the red glittery piece off the Baker's Twine and tied it in a little bow and trimmed it up.  Well, it's not actually a bow.  I just took pieces and tied them together and trimmed them.  I just saved my scrap pieces of twine and removed the white twine and kept the red part.  I thought it was a new and different touch to a card!! I set the stocking in place using Dimensionals.  The oval was set in place with Dimensionals too.

This was a super simple card to make.  The most difficult part was tying the red fringy stuff together, and it really wasn't that bad to do.  But everything else on the card was super simple!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
