Paper Christmas Stocking

For some reason when the calendar turns to November it offically becomes the "Holiday Season". And for the most part Christmas gets the majority of the attention. And so it goes with this months team post for WOW!.

Our theme for this month....Non-Traditional Holiday Colors come to Life!!

For my project I made a paper christmas stocking using my Cricut and WOW! Embossing Powders.

For the stocking I chose to do it in brown and light blue for my non-traditional colors. Who says stockings have to be red and white anyways?

My stocking was cut out using the Cricut Trim-A-Tree cartridge. I used a piece of brown cardstock for the background that I stamped with the Circles Strip stamp from the Funky Border Strips stamp set. Then the top piece of the stocking was cut out of a piece of white cardstock which I then covered completely with Opaque Pastel Blue Embossing Powder. And then to finish it off I added a strip of white ruffled trim to the top and along the border, using Earthtone Pepper Embossing Powder, I used the MerryMerryChristmas stamp from the Merry and Bright Christmas stamp set.

Be sure to check out what the rest of my team members made here.
