I had an extra stocking that didn't fit on the front of the card so I just added it to the inside of the card along with a strip of patterned paper. Just another way to add some fun to the card.

Paper Pieced Stockings
It seems like Karen Lockhart's Warm Socks stamp makes it into every season of stamping for me. This time I've turned the socks into Christmas stockings. I paper pieced the stockings by stamping the main image onto Cosmo Cricket patterned paper. Then I cut out the stocking portions only and hung them onto my sentiment block with brads. I used a Warm Grey Copic Sketch marker to add some shading and dimension to the socks. I finished off my card with more Cosmo Cricket background paper and the *the stockings were hung* sentiment from Karen Lockhart.
