Stocking Gift Card Holders

I have a confession to make. Phew, did it. I can't believe that little 'ol me, a cardmaker, was not going to dress up my gift cards. Then I saw this post by Karen Motz, and knew that I was going to whip up a few stockings.

Stocking Size: Approx. 5" x 5.25"

This was the first one I made (for a girl), the top seemed a little boxy, so I rounded the corners on all the others I made. I kept them pretty simple because I didn't want the cuteness of stocking to get lost under too many embellishments.
Recipe: CTMH PP-That's Amore, CTMH CS-Blush & White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Garnet, Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl EF, Black Sharpie Marker, Martha Stewart Arch Lattice Punch, Ribbon, Pearls.
This one is for a guy, hopefully it doesn't seem too feminine with the poinsettia's. I didn't have a holly branch punch so I improvised.
Recipe: CTMH PP-Evensong, CTMH CS-New England Ivy & Garden Green, CTMH Ink-Garnet, Cuttlebug Argyle EF, Martha Stewart Branch Punch, Black Sharpie Marker, Red Rhinestones, Corner Rounder.
This one is for a couple, so I didn't want to make it too masculine or too feminine.
Recipe: CTMH PP-Aspen, CTMH CS-Outdoor Denim & Colonial White, CTMH Ink-Crystal Blue, Outdoor Denim & Garnet, CTMH SS-Flurries, CTMH Colonial White Ricrac, Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch, Cuttlebug Snowflake EF, Corner Rounder, Foam Square.
I wanted to try and see if I could make a fuzzy-like top section. The results, well, let's just say I tried. I used Liquid Applique and heated it. It's not my favourite, but it will do.
Recipe: Same as above, except instead of Ricrac, I used Liquid Applique.
Enjoy your Christmas holidays!!
