Stocking stuffers

I've had a lot of fun with this Holiday Stocking Bigz XL die. These cards have a little surprise: the tag in the pocket pulls out to reveal a gift card (which I'll attach with a little removable adhesive).

The candy cane really pops with the chunky red glitter, and the tiny jingle bell is just so cute.

I've made several of these in various color combinations. It's hard to pick my favorite, but this might be it. I just love River Rock and Riding Hood Red together, and the little lace border adds a soft, pretty touch.

The tag can be removed and used as a gift tag or a bookmark - or it can remain in the card to be used again next year! I'll attach a separate name tag when it's time for gift-giving.

I got some 6 x 9 catalog envelopes from Staples to hold these cards. Since I don't intend to mail them, I can embellish to my heart's content!

Love this Cherry Cobbler and Wild Wasabi combo, too, especially that gorgeous Frost Lodge DSP. I'm not usually a fan of plaids, but these are beautiful.

I think these stockings will make giving gift cards a lot more exciting!

  1. Wow - you have been busy. These are adorable. I agree, they are a great way to give a boring gift card a little flare. I love them all, but I agree the river rock and riding hood red make it a great combo. You've gotten a lot of great use from this die and embossing folder. Very nice.
