Stuffed Stocking

Texture was my goal for creating this stocking card. I began by cutting a funky looking stocking from cardstock. (The shape sort of looks like it might belong to the Grinch). Then I used Washi tape to cover it so that it looked like it was striped. I created the cuff by adhering polyfil to the top of the stocking. I attached the stocking to a piece of white "brick" embossed cardstock. I also used embroidery thread to stitch around the stocking, which really made it pop. I added red and white polka dot Washi tape to make a frame along the outside edges of the white cardstock, then adhered it to a cardbase that I trimmed with green Washi tape. To finish the card,  I cut out several small gifts and stuffed them into the stocking.

I am linking this card up for two challenges: The Paper Players (for Ann's theme challenge: Christmas in July) and Christmas Card Challenges (stocking challenge)....AND....just for the fun of it, I'll link this card up at The Old Back Porch where crafters share their current projects to inspire others.

Supplies: Cardbase: Recollections, Cardstock: Recollections, Embossing Folder: Darice, DMC Embroidery thread, Decorative Tape: Darice, My Mind's Eye, Polyfil, Adhesive: Scotch ATG
