Hang up Your Stockings

For today#s cards I've used up the last few scraps from the papers I printed to use on my canvas for last weekend's Funky Hand and Tiddly Inks joint Blog Hop.
These are just the extra Funky Hand papers I printed to make the borders, banners etc, I didn't over-print with the houses image on these.
I used:
papers: Funky Hand "Stylish Tree download
Gold thread, Red Ribbon, 
Gold and Aqua Glitter card, Stickles Ice glitter glue
Gie: Memory Box Stocking
Decal sticker sentiment
Punches: EK Success Border punch, various star punches

It's a funny thing, but I've not really found this die easy to use - maybe it's just a bit big for the card size I like to use for my Christmas cards. I played around a bit with it on the first card making different lengths of stockings - I'm thinking that actually the smallest one which is cut down quite a lot looks the best.
  I might dig out my old QK die again, or maybe I should cut some with Mr Robo!

Thanks for visiting today I hope you'll come back soon

Gorgeous again Kathy. You must be nearly finished making your cards by now xxx

Great traditional-looking cards and I think the stocking looks fab! Maybe it's big enough to be more of a "centre stage" thing and your inclination is to put lots of stuff on a card so it seems a bit big for that?

Lovely Kathy, I really like the way you use colour, papers and dies. Little Christmas stockings always make me feel warm inside too xx
