Adhere the cardstock Stockings to fabric and cut around the Stockings using them as a template. There should be two Stockings that can be sewn together to create a 3-D Stocking. Set aside. Hand-cut a heel and toe patch for the Stocking from fabric. Emboss the fabric patches. Apply ink to brayer and roll over embossed image to highlight the design. Let dry. Sew the patches onto the front of the Stocking. Hand-cut a cuff for the Stocking from fabric and emboss with the Botanicals embossing folder. Sew onto the front of the Stocking. Sew stocking front and back pieces together. Stuff with tissue paper and a floral holiday spray. Form craft wire into a handle. Trim to size and attach to the Stocking. Die-cut Holly Leaves from felt and cardstock. Emboss the cardstock using the Christmas Trees #5 embossing folder. Layer materials and attach to the Stocking. Die-cut Berries from felt, embellish with glitter and attach to the stocking. Embellish with a ribbon bow. Create a tag from layers of cardstock, emboss with the Beaded Ribbons embossing folder and embellish with ink a smaller cardstock square with a hand-written “To:” and “From:”. Tie the tag onto the Stocking’s metal handle with a ribbon bow. Attach the Stocking to the sled with a wire.
