Welcome to your Make it With Margi October Tutorial Card #2. Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper meets Eden’s Garden Collection. You get to choose your pets as well as enjoy a sneak peek of the Early Release Eden’s Garden Collection.
We are using the fun Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper and pairing it with some of the offerings in the ‘soon to be released’ Eden’s Garden Collection; stamp set, dies, specialty designer series paper, cotton paper and gems. It’s a pre-release of the upcoming January – June Mini 2022 Catalogue, and perfect for Christmas and all occasion cards.
If you’re not in my class groups, you are welcome to enjoy these designs and your own creativity. If you would like to join one of my groups (online – at the moment) and live in Australia, please contact me. I would love to hear from you.
Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper and Eden’s Garden Collection Card
There are three options. The pets on the Sweet Stocking Paper were so cute, I couldn’t decide on which design to include in your card kits. So, you have three choices. Choose whichever you like for this card and use the other pieces for your own creations. The paper doesn’t have to be for Christmas. Can you see the golden retriever/labradoodle could also be a birthday card?
INGREDIENTS FOR SWEET STOCKINGS AND EDEN’S GARDEN CARD.
Let’s step through the ingredients used for our Card. Some are in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalogue, and some are the pre-release Eden’s Garden.
SWEET STOCKING DESIGNER SERIES PAPER
Nothing says Christmas like cute critters wearing festive decor. Dogs wrapped in Christmas lights. Cats wearing reindeer headbands.

EDEN’S GARDEN COLLECTION
STAMP SET GREETINGS: WORDS OF CHEER
I used Words of Cheer for all stamped images for the Christmas cards. Happy Birthday is from Art Gallery stamp set. These images laid up beautifully on the die-cut.
You might have the same or other greetings and stars/snowflakes that will work for the design. Have fun putting your own creativity to play.
