Christmas Stocking

Another Christmas card made, but I've so many still to do!
Each year I promise myself I'll be organised but it hasn't happened. Here I am again making cards and writing them as the glue dries!
This one was fairly quickly put together using Christmas Stocking digi image from A Passion for Stamps, coloured with Promarkers (as usual!) a gold gel pen,Stickles and Glossy Accents.
The stocking is matted on a Marianne Creatables die cut and I've added Christmas ribbon to the top of the stocking .
The border punch is one of my "new favourites" -  Tonic Studios Stars border and the Snowflakes are 2 layers of a Tonic Studios Multi Detail Snowflake punch. I've got great use from this punch and hope to add a separate post showing all the different ways I use it (if I get time!). I love the way it has 2 parts and can be used in so many different ways to make flowers and not just Christmas ideas.
