For this week's Digital Doodles project, I used Kathy's Night Before Christmas set. I took the stocking image & enlarged it to about 8 inches long to make this super cute money/gift card holder! Be sure to check out Kathy's blog for a chance to win a sweet set of digis and see what the other ladies put together with this set!
I printed out 2 copies, one each for the front & back, on kraft card stock. I also printed it out again to use as templates for the paper piecing. The top of the stocking has a slit where the "opening" is, to slide the goodies into. I dry embossed the top of the stocking. The letters were run through the Xyron twice, to make both sides sticky & then I adhered the glitter. The main piece of the stocking was done with a 1 1/4" punch for the faux quilting.
Years ago, my Dad started a tradition in our family, during the night on Christmas Eve he'd put envelopes in our tree for each of us. They always had a little money in them, and these days sometimes a gift card. So now we all do it! I thought this would make a cute alternative to the envelopes!
