I have set up and online shop - CRAFT MAGIC ONLINE SHOP- on my blog (top right corner). You can now purchase many crafting supplies right here. The shop is powered by Amazon, so you would be making the purchase through Amazon. I have just selected (and sorted into various categories) crafting products that Amazon sells. My blog's shop is divided into 2 parts; one offers paper crafting and scrapbooking supplies and the other one is for crafty kids and offers variety of beautiful crafty kits and products designed for children. 


Take white card 15cm x 30cm and fold it in half. Take a dark red card paper (size 15cm x 15cm) and using double sided tape attach it to the white card. Stamp an image of a xmas stocking on the pale mocha-cream card (9 x 9cm) and colour it in using letraset promarkers. 
Take a pale mocha-cream card (9 x 9 cm) and attach it to the white card (10 x 10 cm) using double sided tape. Attach the white-mocha-cream card to the middle of the red card using foam pads.

Attach the adhesive gems to the stocking.

If you like, attach a "Merry Christmas" outline sticker to the card.

You can use different colour paper to stamp the xmas stoking on. Here are some examples:

Use sage green card paper instead of the mocha-cream paper

Or just stamp the xmas stocking onto a white card paper (size 9 x 9 cm) and attach it to a green card (10 x 10cm) instead.
