Footwear Cards !!

Well, what other title could I use? Here is Santa`s stocking and a Victorian Shoe. The Santa`s stocking template has been sitting on my desk since the first day of the challenge and I have only just got around to making the card, phew better late than never !! I love this little gift card holder, so easy to make. Hopefully by the end of the week we shall all have our own Santa`s stocking hanging on the tree. By the way I forgot to mention that the template for this can be found at challenge TLC248 or Waltzing Mouse Stamps. Thank you Claire for the great challenge.

I used red velvet paper for the main area of the stocking, feels lovely! and for the rest I used some Doodlebug DP I had in my stash. I punched the letters out using the velvet paper and alittle bit of ribbon for the trim. To keep the flap closed I attached a small piece of velcro to one of the corners. I put an eyelet in to strengthen the hole with the silver cord in. I can see it having alot of wear being put on and off the Christmas tree !

For my second card tonight I made a ladies Victorian Shoe card. This template I found at SU. A bit faffy and I don`t suppose I shall rush to make another but it looks cool anyway.

I was hoping to make this into a pouch to put a packet of Hot Chocolate in but it was far too bulky so I changed it into a card. I`ll keep looking for something else to suit my needs. The photograph didn`t turn out aswell as I would have liked, there are small pearls on the tip of the lace edging to match the pearl brads.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the cards. Its late and I`m off to bed !!

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
