Handmade Xmas Cards - Xmas Stocking with Stars

This is another of the quick and easy cards. Easy enough so you can make few of them in one evening and have them ready to post to all of your relatives and friends, just in time for xmas. Of course, you can use different Xmas outline stickers if you prefer, whatever you have in your craft box.

To make this card you will need:

  • White card paper (15 x 30cm)
  • Brown card with red shade (15 x 15cm)
  • White card paper (10 x 8 cm and a small piece to put a Xmas stocking outline sticker on)
  • Dark red card paper (8.5 x 6.5cm)
  • Message outline sticker "Merry Christmas" (optional)
  • Double sided tape 
  • Letraset promarkers (Letraset Metallic Traditional Christmas promarkers - which you can purchase from my blog's Craft Magic Online Shop)
  • Xmas Stocking outline stickers
  • Craft foam pads (I used Stix 2mm thick)

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 brown card paper (size 15cm x 15cm) and using double sided tape attach it to the white card. Attach an outline sticker of the stocking on a piece of white paper and tear around the outline sticker to get the uneven edge. (if you don't have the outline sticker, you can stamp an image on the paper instead using a craft stamp) Colour the picture using letraset romarkers. Take a dark red card (size 10 x 8 cm) and cut out star shapes into the card using craft punch. Attach the dark red card to a white card (size 8.5 x 6.5 cm) using foam pads. Then attach the white card with the stocking picture to the middle of the dark red card. Attach it all to the brown card using double sided tape.

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