Christmas stocking

Good morning folks. Today's card is made using a new Sizzix die, the Tim Holtz Christmas stocking and candy cane. 

I decided to go the whole traditional Christmas route and used a simple red and white colour scheme. 

Once I had cut the stocking and extra bits for the heal, toes, and top, I gave these bits a good coating of Cosmic Shimmer glue and then poured Rock Candy Distress Glitter over the top. They are really lovely and sparkly in real like. 

I used card and papers from the stash and a simple ready made sentiment. 

Then I used some Marianne Pom Pom trim and a length of red fiber across the top with 3 little bells. 

The stocking still looked a little plain for me so I punched out some tiny trees and stuck them down the front and then used a little bit more of the red trim to trim the stocking. 

What do you think? Christmassy enough for you????? lol. Take care and I'll see you soon.
