Stocking Christmas Card
By LeNae Gerig
LeNae's Tip: When applying glitter or flock to an area of the stocking, apply, tap off excess and return it to the jar. If adhering the Double-Stick Dazzle™ to a heavily patterned paper, it is a good idea to line the back of the sticker with solid paper, the same color as the glitter. This will insure that the patterned paper does not show though the layer of glitter and it will help the glitter appear more vibrant.

- Place the card fold on the left side. Cover the card front with red swirl paper. Mat a 4 3/8" brown square with light ivory cardstock, leaving a 1/8" wide border. Glue near the card bottom. Knot a length of green 3/4" wide ribbon, leaving a 1" long tail. Glue across the card, 2" from the bottom.
- Trace a 2"x4 1/4" tag onto light ivory paper and ink the edges brown. Apply the stocking base to the center of the tag and apply red glitter. Place the dots on a piece of plastic and apply brown flock, lift and place in the red stocking. Place the white top on plastic and apply white glitter, then lift and place on the top of the stocking. Secure the green brad and foam tape the stocking to the left side of the ribbon.
- Adhere a Double-Stick Dazzles™ border to the top of the card and sprinkle with white glitter. Adhere 5 gold stars evenly spaced across the border. Place the Dazzles™ greeting on the right side of the brown patterned paper.
- Inside the card: Glue a 3"x4 1/2" rectangle of red swirl paper and glue to the center left of the card inside back. Trace a 2 1/4"x3 1/2" tag onto brown ornament paper and mat with light ivory cardstock. Secure a green brad to the top and glue to the right side of the red rectangle. Place a Dazzles™ greeting to the bottom of the tag and a small red and white glittered stocking at the top.
