Thinking Outside the Box

This week's Card-A-Licious challenge asked you to "think outside the box" by creating a shaped card. I decided to go with a Christmas theme and make a stocking. I did a Google search to find an image of a stocking, then adjusted the size, printed it, and traced it onto a folded piece of cardstock. I then added some patterned paper, and the cuff at the top. I adhered some Fun Flock to the cuff, along with a snowflake and Dew Drop to finish it off.

Paper: PTI white, Baja Breeze, Holiday Treasures dp (SU)
Accessories: corner rounder punch, Fun Flock (Stampendous), Martha Stewart snowflake punch, Dew Drop
