handmade christmas cards

I have had a go at making some new christmas card designs (while I still have the time) using some pretty papers that I picked up last year in the sale.  

I made the mini christmas stocking using felt and hand embroidery, just to add a different texture to the card and to create a fun main feature. 

The cards are white, C6, pre-cut and come with envelopes which cost around £4.99 from hobbycraft.
I attached a piece of self adhesive foam pad to the back of the stocking to create a relief effect, although you cant really tell from the photo. The ribbon was £1.09 a roll and the button was sourced from the hobbycraft Basics Range - £1.00 for a bag of about 50 (mixed colours).
