Joan's Challenge Red, White, and Green

Good Morning Ladies,
Yesterday I did laundry and created. I must admit I created more than I did laundry. Oh well the wash will always wait...ideas slip away...
This morning I have a card for Joan's Challenge Red, White, and Green . Yes I created this yesterday! Here is the link to the challenge....
Here is my card....using the stocking die I just ordered from Joan's here
 To create this card I used a white card base. I added metallic red and white paper from GSD. I used a Martha Stewart border punch at the top of the card in white card stock. I then added a velvet ribbon on top of the border. I just love velvet ribbon. It reminds me of christmas dresses in velvet. I created the stocking using a Memory Box die as I mentioned above. I cut the sock part in green card stock and the top of the stocking in glitter card stock. I must say this die was a joy to work with. I put a button on each stocking to hang it from the ribbon above. Little white snowman buttons top off each stocking. I cut a spellbinder label from white card stock and stamped a sentiment on it. Buttons placed on this kept the theme of this card.
 This is a side view as I popped up the stockings.
This is the inside of my card.
Another great challenge Joan and Selma! I am loving the freedom of this challenge. I love red and Christmas!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
