My sweet poodle Nika needed a Christmas stocking so I made this one for her! I used Graphic45's new Christmas collection, St Nicholas, to cut out the cuff and toe pieces for the stocking and added a tag from the collection at the heel. I used a Creative Embellishments paw print mask to stencil on the paw prints.
Xyron sent us some great sticker makers and tape runners to use that are the perfect solution for those tiny parts that you need to adhere. I fussy cut a tiny holly cluster and a a Santa hat and ran them through the 1 1/2" sticker maker and adhered to my diecut poodle. Loved it! I didn't get glue all over everything like I usually do and it stayed stuck. Now that's the perfect adhesive for me.
I made my cuff by first cutting a piece of St Nicholas plaid for the cuff and toe. Then I added a Santa tag and banners from the Graphic 45 St Nicholas collection. The letters actually came from another G45 collection, Raining Cats and Dogs. Petaloo crocheted lace was perfect to accentuate the cuff before adding my floral cluster. Ohhh I totally love Petaloo's pinecone & berry picks that I tucked under those beautiful burlap poinsettias and briar roses.
I used Crafters Workshop Light & Flufy Modeling Paste to stencil the paw prints, great product and dries quickly!
