The stockings were hung

When I was struggling with crafting a couple of months ago,
a few people suggested that making Christmas cards might help.
Well, they were right. Thank you   :-)
Even though my cards are much more CAS, I really feel as though I'm getting somewhere now.

Here's my latest card for the pile.

I'll definitely make this design again, it's quick to do and great for using up those snippets of Christmas paper.
I used a little, Christmas stocking die and cut the shape 3 times.
The dp was lined up with the die cuts and stuck onto the card base.
Then, I attach my die-cut card with foam pads - I really like the depth and shadow that this gives you.

All that's left, is to add a simple sentiment strip and a little gem heart.
