Stocking from Cricut Close to My Heart - Art Philosophy
Fun idea inspired by Kelly Triggs with Lorraine’s own twist!
Cut base 2 at  7.5 colonial white
Cut 1 print 7.5 Watch pattern direction
Cut leaves at 2” emboss with embossing folder
            Distress with CTMH New England Ink #Z2135
            Sand just a little of the embossed leaves using the CTMH sanding block
Tag cut base at 2 ½ “
Tag cut at 2”
            Distress edge using the new CTMH Cashmere ink #Z2175
            Stamp set used B1406 Blessings of Peace
Cut stocking pieces in complementary print 
Use liquid glass around edges of stocking except for top opening. 
Also use liquid glass half way down stocking inside so card won’ get lost
I added CTMH cranberry ribbon
Decorated with tulip CTMH alcohol markers
Red button
CTMH Colonial white waxy flax #Z1081
When using a button with 4 holes, make sure your ribbon ends are face up so that you can tie a bow.  I love CTMH waxy flax.  It is so easy to string through the holes.
