hanging stocking digi & 2 challenges

Good Afternoon!

I have a hanging stocking digi for you today, its the same as the little stockings hanging on the fireplace in that digi but I thought I’d share a bigger version to have as an image on its own.

I followed 2 challenges for today’s card, Mojo Monday for the sketch and The Play Date Cafe for my colour scheme. As I have started my Christmas cards I wanted to challenge myself to do a Christmas card in such non-traditional colours, well it was a struggle to get it finished. I had trouble getting a Christmas-y feel so I threw some glitter and gems into the mix and decided to draw a line underneath it and move on ;)

I’m having to hand wheel my sewing machine to ensure my stitching lines are straight, if anyone has any advice on this I would be very grateful as my paper/card slides all over the place when I use my pedal. I cut the snowflakes on my Craftrobo/Silhouette, they are from the cut file Snowflake set 1 on this page.

    Thank you for the beautiful hanging stocking … love how it matches the ones on the fireplace mantel. Your card is lovely … would never have thought to put those colors together, but it is very festive!

    Beautiful card Bird, thank you for the digi. We R Memory Keepers makes a tool called Sew Easy, as I can’t work a real machine this tool works wonderfully for me.
