Now, onto this week's card:
I cut this super cute stocking at 5" from the Cricut Winter Frolics Shapes Cartridge.  My card was sized at 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and opens at the bottom, although you could have it open to the side.
I used various glittery papers from Reminisce and DCWV.  My background was run through the Cuttlebug with a new Christmas embossing folder, soon to be released.
I used a stamp from the Close to My Heart December 25 set which you can get on Melanie's site HERE.
Card Recipe:
1) Fold red cardstock 4-1/4" x 11" paper in half to form 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card.
2) Adhere piece of 4" x 5-1/4" white cardstock to inside.
3) Run piece of 4" x 5-1/4" white cardstock through Cuttlebug with embossing folder.  Adhere to front of card.
4) Cut stocking from Cricut Winter Frolics Shapes Cartridge at 5", all layers using glittery papers and adhere to front of card.
5) Stamp "Do Not Open" onto white cardstock.  Trim and mount onto green paper.  Adhere to front.
6) Attach red bow to stocking.
