Santa's Chubby Stocking Pocket

Happy Ho Ho Ho to you, my Christmas-crafting friends! Do you have glitter stuck to you EVERY day lately? Are you running out to JoAnn or Michael's on a weekly basis, for "just one or two things"? Is there time for just another project or two - or ten? 
Why yes, indeed there is PLENTY of time. 
Tis the season my friends...tis the SEASON. 

Tis the season for cutie pie gift card holders...or treat holders...or both...this sweet Chubby Stocking Die from Fun Stampers Journey is so fun to play with. I die cut and embossed two stockings, and then I stitched them together with Whip Cream Thread to make a fun pocket.

To embellish this little stocking, I sponged some Whip Cream ink over the embossed snowflakes to really make them pop. Then I added Santa, a little sentiment, plus some embellishments. And remember those paper curls I made a few weeks ago? Today I made some with printed paper, and tucked them in the stocking for some EXTRA pizazz! (A little glue dot at the end of each one will keep them in place!) 

Plus, to make this little guy even sweeter, the Chubby Stocking Die is 50% off TODAY, to kick of the first day of Fun Stampers Journey's 12 Days of Deals promotion. (Check out this blog post too!) Seriously - 50% off, which makes this thin metal die set only $9.97! (Wow, I sound like a car salesman! But seriously - this is a fantastic deal.) Each day during the 12 Days of Deals promo, there will be a different awesome sale - but each will only last for ONE day, so don't snooze or you'll miss it!  

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'm grateful for you! Check out another idea using the Chubby Stocking Die in the FSJ Gallery, and be sure to pin both projects for inspiration! xoxo
