Crimbo Crackers Challenge 35 - Shaped Cards

Time for another Crimbo Crackers challenge!  The theme this fortnight is:

Shaped Cards

And here is my sample.  I've used papers from the Winter Wonderland download from Funky Hand and my own template.  I've added a faux stitched line around the top of the stocking and the toe bit and also glitter glue around all edges - a boy does need a bit of bling!

The letters are cut with a Sizzix die - Girls are Weird alphabet and then onto a Sizzix scallop tag.  The snowflake is a Marianne Creatables die and I've cut it from some glitter card I found (along with the letters).  And finally I wound some tiny blue metallic star tinsel around the top - always buy stuff like that in the sales after Christmas as you can get it really cheap!  And I bought this last January sales too so its about time I used it!

Good luck with the challenge!  For more details and how to enter, pop over to Crimbo Crackers.
