CottageCutz Shabby Chic Christmas Stocking

Have yourself a Shabby little Christmas.
  May all your decorations be white. 
 Hang a tattered little star upon the highest bow,
 and have yourself a Shabby little Christmas now!!!
Hello friends and bloggers It's Carol here today.    It's now just about that time before Christmas when I realize I have planned more craft projects than I know I can finish or handle.  I was procrastinating about this project knowing I had cards to make to get in the mail and a project to show you today. I got out my little Christmas note cards that I purchased from Michaels, got some white paint, cheese cloth, kraft cardstock, a couple of dies, glitter and punches and went to town.  This card goes together fast.  I am not kidding.  I will have made 8 cards in two nights.  That is fast for me!
Not only that, this will cost 66 cents to mail instead of $2.50 to $3.00 per card that I normally spend.  This is so much fun to make.  If I don't have paint up to my elbows and on my face and glitter all over the place, I am not having fun.  This was fun!!!!    Thanks for stopping by.  Sure do appreciate it.  See you soon!!!  Here are the dies I used:

Eco and white paper are so good combination. I also like to use it and your card is so cheerful and nice.
