Santa Stockings 3963

I had a lot of fun with this one. After I found my white puffy paint. I think that took the longest. I’m pretty sure I have some sparkly snow puffy paint, too, but still haven’t remembered where I put it. I know it was somewhere so I’d be able to find it easily. Yeah, right!

So this is for today’s IC207 challenge and Friday’s LSC247 at Splitcoast. All images are DRS Designs.

I wanted to use this funny greeting but I didn’t have any stocking images to go w/ it. I drew a stocking pattern and cut out 3 of them, then traced it on to the back of some wide red velveteen ribbon and cut them out. I traced the top part onto some white c/s and painted it w/ the white puffy paint. The bottle says it’s mainly for fabric and to let it dry for about 4 hrs. Sure thing. Not a chance. I let it dry maybe 10 min before I caved. Watching paint dry is right up there on my list of activities to sleep by. So after the excruciating 10 min. I hit it w/ the heat gun. Very carefully. I actually had to do 4 of the tops. Apparently there’s a fine line between puffy and toasted.

Put the stockings together, added little punched snowflakes. Made the little candy canes. The canes are actually made w/ a small J punch that I drew the little stripes on.  The bigger candy canes, I drew and cut out.

I used Spellbinders rectangle Nesties to cut out the sentiment and the next two layers. The green layer was also embossed w/ a Cuttlebug candy cane folder.

The white layer behind the stockings was punched down both sides w/ a small EK Success punch. I’m not sure what it’s supposed to be, but to me it kind of looks like a striped candy cane. I layered everything onto two pieces of Christmas dp and then onto a 4 1/8 x 9 1/2 inch white card (fits a #10 business envelope).

Thanks so much for stopping by!
