Stocking friends

This gate fold card is my third design creation for Christmas cards all year round December, where the theme is 'Christmas stockings'. The background card used on the fronts is from an old Kanban kit and the inside card and other elements are from the Hunkydory 'stocking friends' from the Snowy Days kit.
