Christmas Stockings Tutorial

Hi Everyone
I'm back from attending the 30th Anniversary Celebration of Stampin' Up Convention in Orlando, FL.  I have brought back with me some amazing new ideas and tips and techniques to try and I intend to put them to good use in the future projects I create on my blog.  I have a tutorial to follow for the card above and it is a very cute and easy way to send holiday greetings to those you love.  I intend to post most of my tutorials so you can also make and send these cards and I will also be giving you the item numbers for all of the products I have used making this card as well as the dimensions I used to make this card a "no brainer" for you!  If you click on the "Stampin UP Web Page" on the column on the right you'll be able to shop for all the items.
Here's the tutorial....enjoy!
