Victorian Christmas Stocking Card


Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Thank you so much for the sweet comments on the stocking I made for Cassidy!  I had to chuckle when I saw the “Waiting for Santa” challenge at The Shabby Tea Room:

More stockings!  I got out my stocking punch and went to work making a shabby stairstep card.  I had the base already cut for another unused project, so I just added some layers, a little stocking filled with greenery and embellished with pearls, and a sentiment tag:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Vintage Stocking Christmas

The Kraft Journal’s current challenge is to use a tag on your card, so in addition to the little sentiment tag, I also made the stocking into a tag as well:


I added another layer to the back of the stocking, stamping “to” and “from” from the Festival of Trees set, and added some removable adhesive so it could be attached to the card.  Thanks for looking today!

During last week’s snow, Cassidy was really enjoying watching it cover the ground, and was quite excited to see the little sparrows taking shelter in our holly bushes!



What’s a few fingerprints on the windowpanes, right?!  They grow up so fast!

Oh I do miss the holly. We don't have that here. It is so pretty.
Your card is beautiful! I love a ll the texture.
LeAnne thank you so much for remembering my Birthday. That was so sweet of you.
I am sick with a sinus infection. The dr, yesterday, said yes I have an infection but call her today, my birthday, and she will call in med. Really! I have not had the infection long enough for meds. But today I have it long enough. This is according to the studies. They have not studied me. Oh well you know just what I am talking about, I am sure. Thank you again for remembering me. Hugs, Linda

This is ADORABLE, LeAnne! Love that little stocking tag and the step card that looks just like a mantle! Pretty snowfall. Fingerprints add character and reminders of loved ones.

Beautiful card, LeAnne.

Yes, the fingerprints can be cleaned off, but the precious moments need to be cherished as they happen;)
This is one stunning card LeAnne. I love the shabby look of it. The stocking/tag is adorable. The brick ef looks wonderful as a backdrop for the rest of the card. Way to cover 2 challenges in 1.

OH MY STARS!!! This is swoon worthy LeAnne, a new fave from you my friend ~ LOVE it!! I also LOVE those sweet pics of Cassidy. When we moved from our first house, there was a perfect hand print of Joey's next to the front door! I wanted to cut out that piece of drywall and keep it forever LOL!!

Hello LeAnne, Love the card - gotta get that EF! But what I really love are the adorable winter pictures of Cassidy looking out the window. I think you need to make a card using one!

BEAUTIFUL card, LeAnne! The stair step design, with the bricks makes it look like the stocking is hung by the fireplace! Fantastic design!
