Christmas Stocking

Now what was you thinking with that title?!  Here is a card!! It's part of a Christmas card order and sometimes I just don't know what to make for kids especially when they are not really kids but young adults.  And male!  And this is one of a set of 4 for 4 brothers!

It's my own template and the papers are from Funky Hand - Stylish Tree download which is part of the Oh Come All Ye Crafters Christmas Collection.  There is also a wordbook download for those who like wordbooks (and I am one of them!) and if you buy the two collections together you get it for a reduced price!  So not only do you get some fab papers, a full alphabet wordbook collection, you also get to save money to spend on more stash!  And the paper download on its own is only £2.49!

The tag is a Sizzix tag with Sizzix Girls are Weird letters which have been glittered somewhat plus a layered Marianne Createables snowflake die to hold it in place.

I've glittered around the edge of the card with some trusty deep red glitter glue and added some card candy here and there.
