Winter Stocking Garland-DT for Generations Crafting

Do I really have to tell you how much fun these were to decorate or does the picture say it all?? LOL
I want to get another one and get a Christmas garland made.. I still have time..LOL
These are really pretty big in size, 6" wide and 8" tall.. and you dont' have to stay within the lines when you embellish it..LOL 
This is the before picture:
(the set comes with 5, 2 piece stockings that are super easy to decorate and embellish)
I used Bo Bunnies new Midnight Frost papers, I actually ended up using the 6x6 stack, which was pretty cool, being that the prints on the papers are smaller and can be easier visible on the stocking.. BUT!! its not wide enough to cover the whole boot, so I added the heal and toe patches.. Which I would of done anyway..

and then for a few close ups:

 These are really sparkley, but the lighting is so bad in Finland this time of year.  No matter what I tried, I could not get the sparkle on the photos  :(

 The white snow flakes on the purple paper I made using a snow flake stamp, embossing ink, white embossing powder, which I then heat set it with my heat gun.

This is one of the tags I made, it measures 2.5" x 4", I stamped it using a snowflake stamp, embossing ink, white embossing powder and then heat set with my heat gun.. then inked the edges using Tim Holtz distress inks: Broken China and Faded Jeans.
