The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...

Years ago I started hand embroidering our names onto our stockings. What a great idea I had! It would be so cute - the boys in green, and the girls in a beautiful deep red. I got through my husband's, my oldest son's, and part way through mine. Then I had my daughter. That was over six years ago and the word "Mom" on my stocking is still only halfway done. My younger two kids' stockings are nameless - you know, in case we decide to change their names in a few years.

But that did not keep me from wanting to make brand new customized stockings this year! Fortunately, paper stockings come together much quicker than hand-stitched, embroidered ones. ;)

Several people have asked me to post pictures of the stocking card we made at my November Stamp Class, so here it is for your crafty pleasure. The little stockings dangle from their mini clothespins and make the recipient giggle every time!

The mini clothespins make the card pretty thick, so we made a custom envelope to accommodate the card.
 A matching snowflake made from Silver Glimmer Paper, the Northern Frost Decorative Strip, and Big Shot Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheets gives the envelope the right amount of "bling".
